    Faculty Perspectives is published regularly to highlight recent faculty scholarship at IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law. The latest issue spotlights our faculty’s work in the area of law, gender, and society. Katharine Baker, in an article forthcoming in the Minnesota Law Review, argues that the criminal law has been an inadequate vehicle for addressing rape and the norm of male entitlement to sex. In an excerpt from her book just published by the Cambridge University Press, Felice Batlan traces the history of legal aid and women’s role in shaping it. And Michael Spak, along with colleague Jonathan Tomes, enumerate the practical problems they see with modifying the military justice system to better handle sexual assault cases. Also in this issue, constitutional law scholar Steven Heyman considers the recent conservative-libertarian turn in First Amendment jurisprudence at the U.S. Supreme Court.
