Fall Open House

Experiential Learning at Chicago-Kent

Saturday, November 4, 2023 | 9 a.m.–noon

Law students must not only know the theory of law but also master the practice of law. That's why Chicago-Kent offers a wide array of opportunities for students to gain practical experience during law school and build their lawyering skills. Join us to learn more about these opportunities including our top-ranked Trial Advocacy program, our unique in-house legal clinic (The CK Law Group: The Law Offices of Chicago-Kent), externship opportunities, and our innovative Praxis certificate program. 

Event Format

This is a hybrid event with the option to attend either in-person or virtually through Zoom. Virtual attendees will watch the live program taking place on campus and will have the option to take a virtual tour hosted by a current student.
