Chicago-Kent Honors Scholar

Class of 2015

Seth Kennedy received his B.A. from Haverford College in May 2015. He majored in political science and minored in math. His undergraduate thesis examined the Israeli-Egyptian peace process from 1967 to 1979. In his free time, Seth interned with Democratic congressional primary candidate Doug Pike and Senate candidate Rep. Adm. (Ret.) Joe Sestak, helping to raise money, engage voters, and organize Haverford students. Seth also spent two summers interning with UNITE-HERE!, a labor union representing hospitality workers, in both Chicago and Toronto, where he developed a passion for labor rights issues.

At Chicago-Kent, Seth has continued to apply that passion for labor rights issues in his pursuit of Chicago-Kent's Labor and Employment Law Certificate. Seth is currently working with Professor Martin Malin, two other Kent students, and students and faculty of Toronto's Osgoode Hall School of Law, researching the comparative outcomes of Ontario labor arbitration and Human Rights Tribunal proceedings. Seth is also a student editor for the Employee Rights and Employment Policy Journal published by Chicago-Kent's Institute for Law and the Workplace.
