Honors Scholars push the boundaries in every area of legal practice and public policy through close collaboration with Chicago-Kent faculty members. In their first year of law school, they attend an honors seminar that explores emerging legal issues in diverse areas, including biotechnology, human rights, Internet privacy, environmental regulation, and international relations. In their second year, Honors Scholars work one-on-one with the dean on a law and public policy project. In their final year, they collaborate with the dean to produce a publishable paper on a topic of particular interest.

Chicago-Kent Honors Scholars graduate from law school with incomparable experience and influential contacts in the legal world—crucial capital for students seeking to influence the shape and substance of the law.

Honors alumni can be found in a wide variety of legal, business and entrepreneurial settings, including small and large law firms, major pharmaceutical companies and other corporations, start-up companies, public interest organizations, academia, government agencies and state courts. Since the inception of the Honors Scholars Program in 1998, Chicago-Kent has graduated 100 Honors Scholars who live and work in 25 states and abroad.
