About the Speaker
Stephen Rushin is an Assistant Professor of Law at Loyola University Chicago School of Law. Professor Rushin specializes in criminal law, criminal procedure, police accountability, and empirical legal studies. He holds both a J.D. and Ph.D. from University of California, Berkeley. Professor Rushin has had several articles published on the subject of police reform, and in his book Federal Intervention in American Police Departments, which was published by Cambridge University Press earlier this year, he makes the argument that Congress should expand and improve federal oversight of policing. A number of national media outlets have featured Professor Rushin’s research, and he has appeared on national television and radio programs to discuss his areas of expertise.

Intellectual property information is complex and accessible through numerous data sources. It is difficult and time-consuming to find the information you need and challenging to aggregate it so that it is usable. ktMINE finds, connects and analyzes IP data, in order to simplify your research process, minimize research time, and maximize analysis power.
As a Chicago based company, ktMINE is excited to meet and support CALL.
Two gift cards will be raffled during the meeting courtesy of LexisNexis. Check out their InfoPro for news and tips for librarians.
Registration will close at 12:00 Noon on Friday September 8th 2017
