Made of stainless steel and continually growing its assembly of panels, Iustitiam Servaverunt, or the “Judges Wall” as it’s more commonly known, was erected in 2006 to honor the impact of Chicago-Kent alumni who have gone on to serve on the judiciary. Public interest work is a strength of Chicago-Kent's, and the Judges Wall highlights alumni who serve. The nine panels of the wall feature alumni names alongside translations of the phrases “truth,” “justice,” “rule of law,” and “liberty,” and related quotations from famed historical figures.
Over 250 alumni have had their names etched on plaques along the wall- members of classes ranging from 1989 to 2001.
In addition to quotations from a variety of historical figures, including Martin Luther King, Jr., Thurgood Marshall, and Socrates, the Wall also includes statements from the law school’s namesake, legal scholar Chancellor James Kent, as well as alumni Abraham Lincoln Marovitz ‘25 and Ilana Diamond Rovner ‘66.
