We also invite all alumni to attend the ASCK Week Networking Reception on February 20. This is a great opportunity for current students to meet Chicago-Kent alumni in a variety of practice areas in an informal setting. This is the perfect chance for you to give back to current students by helping them hone their networking skills while also catching up with fellow alumni and doing some networking of your own.
