Angelo Christopher, a second-year student at IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law, is the recipient of the law school’s 2014 Harold J. and Nancy F. Krent Excellence Award. The announcement was made October 31, 2014, during student award ceremonies in the Walnut Room of the Hotel Allegro in Chicago.
Dean Krent and his wife, Nancy, a partner at the law firm of Hodges Loizzi Eisenhammer Rodick & Kohn LLP, established the award in 2013 to recognize the student or students who rank at the top of the combined first-year full-time and second-year part-time classes.
“We created this award to recognize the hard work and dedication it takes to succeed in the first year of law school and to encourage students to strive for excellence,” said Ms. Krent.
Christopher is a candidate for a J.D. degree with a certificate in intellectual property law. He completed his undergraduate education at the University of Wisconsin–Madison with a degree in mechanical engineering. The Krent award includes a $2,500 cash award.
