Happy new year and welcome back to the Chicago-Kent Law Review.
We’ll start 2010 with an overview of how our publications are coming along.
Volume 84, Number 1 is printed and has been delivered to our office (right now it is sitting in boxes on the floor but we’ll remedy that soon). For Volume 84, Number 2, we’ve received the first set of proofs from the publishers and are busily working on the latter stages of revisions. The proofs for Volume 85, Number 1 are also here, though we have not yet started revisions.
Our goal is to publish all of Volumes 84 and 85 by the end of Spring semester. Wish us luck (better yet, buy us a drink when you can).
Below is a tentative table of contents for volume 84, number 1 of the Chicago-Kent Law Review. Before long, we will be placing the final table of contents, along with copies of each paper, in the archives.

Video from the Philanthropy Symposium we hosted last month is now available on line. See the Symposium page for links and instructions on how to view it.
Papers based on these presentations will be published in an upcoming issue of the Chicago-Kent Law Review.
If you have recently attended our Symposium on Philanthropy Law in the 21st Century and are applying for CLE credit, please email email Ilana Bamberger, the Law Review’s Managing Editor, at email@example.com to request a copy of the preliminary drafts of the articles. Our CLE administrator has informed us that CLE credit will be unavailable to anyone not in receipt of these drafts.
Note, drafts will only be available to individuals who attended the symposium and signed in for CLE credit. All others can access the articles on this website and in print after they are formally published.
The Chicago-Kent Law Review would like to thank all of the speakers and other participants who made last week’s Philanthropy Symposium a resounding success. We greatly appreciate all of the positive feedback that we received.
In the coming weeks we plan to post resources from the symposium on this web site. These resources will include photos, videos, and eventually the published versions of the papers.
Keep in mind that you can stay on top of these and other Chicago-Kent Law Review events by subscribing to our RSS feed, following us on Twitter, or becoming a fan on Facebook.
We have posted PDFs of the articles for Volume 83, Number 2 and Volume 83, Number 3 of the Chicago-Kent Law Review. You can find them by navigating the issues drop-down menu option.
We expect to have more back issues available soon.
