Eve Rips joined the Chicago-Kent faculty in 2022 as a Visiting Assistant Professor. Prior to joining Chicago-Kent, she served as a Visiting Assistant Professor of Law at the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law, and as a Clinical Teaching Fellow in the Legislation & Policy Clinic at Loyola University Chicago School of Law. Her research centers around the principle that legal systems designed for children and young adults work best when they are built based on nuanced understanding of child and emerging adult development, and that policies that impact young people should be shaped by directly-impacted youth.

Professor Rips has also served as the Director of Regional Strategy for Young Invincibles, a national nonprofit that advocates for access to economic opportunity for young adults. In that capacity she was responsible for overseeing Young Invincibles’ five regional offices, building the organization’s approach to regional growth and sustainability, and running multi-state campaigns. She initially joined the organization as the founder and Director of the Chicago-based Midwest Office. She also previously worked as a legal fellow and attorney with the Education Equity Project at the Chicago Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, where her work focused primarily on the school-to-prison pipeline and class-action litigation related to race discrimination in public schools in the Chicagoland area.
