Professionalism and Ethics Society (PES)

The purpose of the Professionalism and Ethics Society is to enhance the Northern Illinois University College of Law community’s professional and ethical principles inside and outside of the classroom to help develop more well-rounded future attorneys.

The objectives of the Society are to have more student involvement in both the process and delivery of the professionalism series provided by the faculty of NIU; to offer honest, realistic expectations of the legal profession; to encourage healthy and balanced professional and person lives; to encourage consistent professionalism in all aspects of life; to promote ethical behavior and practices; to facilitate a mentoring program with alumni and practicing attorneys in the area to develop extended relationships and encourage growth in professionalism, networking, and life balance; to create and work towards one specific semester goal(s) that changes each semester in focus and purpose; and to develop a Professionalism and Ethics Society scholarship on an annual basis.
