    January Open House: The Chicago-Kent Law School Experience

    IIT Downtown Campus - Chicago-Kent College of Law
    Room: Governor Richard B. Ogilvie Auditorium

    Two of the best ways to learn about a law school are to attend classes taught by the law school's faculty and to talk with current students. Our January Open House will provide you with both opportunities.

    During the morning, you will have the opportunity to meet members of our nationally recognized faculty and to see them in action as you attend two law school mini-classes. The afternoon portion of the open house will feature breakout sessions with current students. Faculty, Admissions staff members, Career Services strategists and Financial Aid counselors will also be available to answer your questions. Law School tours will be provided.
