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 alumni of Chicago-Kent College of Law who have gone on to become sitting courtroom judges. The nine panels of the Judges Wall feature the names of the alumni 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.
Save the date for this fall, October 25th, when the next Judge's Wall panel will be unveiled and dedicated. In the meantime, send new information about alumni judges to email@example.com.
