Thanks for visiting the new Chicago-Kent Faculty Blog. I’d like to begin by suggesting a couple of the goals we hope to achieve through the blog.
As Sarah alluded to in her welcome post, our primary goal is to share news about the intellectual life of the law school with the outside world. We want to share exciting work that our faculty are doing with scholars, policy-makers, and the public. We hope that the blog will provide current and prospective students with a sense of the academic enterprise of the law school. And we hope that it will be a useful way for alumni to keep up-to-date about the intellectual progress of the law school.
In addition to posts about faculty scholarship, faculty in the news, and traditional academic blogging, we will include a series of posts by our C-K Faculty Blog Fellows – excellent second and third year law students who will provide journalistic descriptions of events on campus and throughout the city. These written descriptions will often be accompanied by audio/visual podcasts of the events.
Thanks for visiting. Please come by often.
To ensure that comments are respectful and in keeping with the purpose of the C-K Faculty Blog, all comments are subject to approval by a Chicago-Kent moderator. Disagreements and intellectual challenges are welcome. Short, pithy comments are particularly appreciated. We are keen on robust discussion but comments may be denied if they:
- include unsolicited advertisements
- are unrelated or non-responsive to the subject-matter of the post
- contain personal attacks, abusive, rude, or profane language or inflammatory remarks
- are obscene.
The purpose of the C-K Faculty Blog is to provide a forum that brings together all the rich intellectual contributions of the Chicago-Kent faculty and to encourage respectful and scholarly dialogue within the extended Chicago-Kent community, including faculty, students, alumni and colleagues at other law schools and universities. We welcome and encourage readers to follow conversations, post comments through the blog’s “Comments” feature, and to explore Chicago-Kent faculty scholarship through the “C-K Faculty” links.
