Dean Anita Krug from Chicago-Kent has just announced the official renaming of the Martin H. Malin Institute for Law and the Workplace. Anyone in the labor law field is well aware that a more fitting name and tribute could not be had. Indeed, as evidence of the widespread appreciation that Marty earned over his career, the institute successfully raised over $1 million in his honor. Congratulations Marty, well deserved!
Below is the full announcement from Dean Krug, including an invitation for a "virtual toast" on March 10:
I am pleased to announce the official renaming of the Martin H. Malin Institute for Law and the Workplace for founding director Martin "Marty" Malin at Chicago-Kent College of Law. Since 1996, the ILW has been a leader in research, training, dialogue, and reflection on the law that governs the workplace, and was named the nation's top program in employment law by preLaw Magazine. Now the Malin Institute for Law and the Workplace will continue that work. We plan to mark this significant moment in our history on March 10, 2022 at 6 pm for a virtual toast where you can hear from Marty, and we can celebrate this successful history together. For more information and to register, please visit here.
Marty and all of us at Chicago-Kent are grateful for the support from our community in developing ILW from an innovative idea to its current status as a leader in the workplace law community. With gifts and pledges from community members, we created an endowment in Marty's honor that will support the Institute in perpetuity. I'm pleased to share with you that the endowment commitments now exceed $1 million. We could not have attained this milestone without the labor and employment law community’s commitment to the ILW’s mission. There is still much work to do, however, and if you haven't done so already, I invite you to join other members of the community in making a gift or pledge to support the Martin H. Malin Institute for Law and the Workplace. Your gift will help us continue to be the go-to law school for aspiring labor and employment lawyers and to continue our mission of serving the current labor and employment law community and the next generation of workplace law attorneys. You can contribute online here. If you would prefer to send a check or consider other ways to give, please contact our Assistant Dean of Advancement, Chrissy Brown, at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (312) 906-5236.
Congratulations to Marty and to everyone who supported this significant achievement. I can't wait to see what the Martin H. Malin Institute for Law and the Workplace will accomplish. I hope you can join us for the virtual toast to celebrate this successful campaign!
