Why City Year loves Illinois Institute of Technology’s Chicago-Kent College of Law

The Chicago-Kent College of Law is one of the few law schools affiliated with a technological university. Recognizing that students must be able to think like lawyers before they can practice, Chicago-Kent first and foremost teaches students the inner logic of the law. It then stresses innovative skills programs that enable students to learn to practice as attorneys. The school’s focus on legal writing, clinical and trial advocacy programs equips students to hit the ground running upon graduation. In addition, the school’s historical focus on the intersection between law and technology further enhances students’ ability to anticipate future developments in the law.
