Program in Public Interest Law

Chicago-Kent's public interest faculty brings as much innovation as experience to the classroom and beyond. Professor Ron Staudt, for instance, heads the Center for Access to Justice and Technology, which uses the Internet to make legal resources more readily available to low-income individuals. Professor Lori Andrews has earned considerable media attention for her groundbreaking litigation on reproductive and genetic technologies. And Henry Perritt and his students have provided refugee aid and promoted the rule of law in Eastern Europe through Project Bosnia, Operation Kosovo, and Destination Democracy.
