    Chicago–Kent College of Law, the law school affiliated with Illinois Institute of Technology, is nationally recognized for the scholarship and accomplishments of its faculty and student body. It is the second oldest law school in the state of Illinois. Many of the applications of technology in the law school classroom today were pioneered at Chicago-Kent. It is the only law school in the United States with a three-year legal writing program.

    Chicago-Kent teaches a standard first year law school curriculum with courses in Torts, Contracts, Criminal Law, Property and Civil Procedure. The school places a heavy emphasis on Legal Research and Writing. Kent's writing curriculum has been used as a model for other programs. Professors at Chicago-Kent were responsible for founding and developing the curriculum of BarBri, the largest and most popular bar exam review preparation course in the country.

    Law & Technology

    Chicago-Kent understands the relationships between law and technology, whether in the law school classroom or in society at large. Students have opportunities to be fully involved in technological initiatives of social import across a spectrum of concerns.
    At Chicago-Kent, finding new and beneficial ways to apply technology to legal education is an important institutional objective. Much of what is taken for granted in law school classrooms today--from high-speed Internet access to computer-assisted legal instruction--was pioneered at Chicago-Kent. The law school's innovative course in Litigation Technology teaches students how to use technology to enhance their trial presentations and manage digital evidence in the courtroom.

    J.D. students interested in the legal protection of scientific and technological innovations may pursue a certificate in intellectual property law. Chicago-Kent's LL.M. program in international intellectual property law, the first of its kind in the nation, prepares students for the global nature of contemporary intellectual property practice.

    Students can participate in public-interest and research initiatives based at Chicago-Kent that focus on law and technology. The Institute for Science, Law and Technology employs a cross-disciplinary approach to evaluating emerging technologies and their impact on society, capitalizing on the expertise of academics, practitioners and policymakers at the intersection of science and law. Several Web-based Access to Justice initiatives make legal resources available to self-represented litigants and pro bono attorneys representing low-income clients. IIT's Center for Diabetes Research and Policy facilitates pro bono legal representation for individuals or groups of individuals who are denied access to medical treatment for diabetes and diabetes-related illnesses or face discrimination in schools and employment.
