Schiff Hardin LLP has become one of 23 Founding Members of the Project for Attorney Retention ("PAR").

This organization works to stem unwanted attrition among lawyers — a benefit for both legal employers and the lawyers themselves — by promoting work/life balance and the advancement of women in the legal profession. For more information, visit PAR's Web site at http://www.pardc.org/.

Schiff Hardin's membership in PAR is part of the firm's comprehensive and ongoing efforts to maximize attorney and staff retention. Chicago magazine named Schiff Hardin #7 among the 25 best companies to work for in the Chicago metropolitan area in its October 2004 issue.

Schiff Hardin LLP's commitment to advancing the profession through education continues to make an impact on undergraduate and law school students across the nation. As the fall semester commences, eighteen Schiff Hardin attorneys will be in classrooms, as well as in courtrooms, board rooms, and conference rooms, from coast-to-coast and even in China.

Several of the firm's attorneys, such as Barry S. Alberts, Mark C. Friedlander, William M. Hannay, Allan Horwich, Richard J. Hoskins, Charlene Q. Kalebic, Kim A. Kamin, Roger Pascal, Bruce A. Wagman, Jeffrey R. Williams, and John S. Worden, have held adjunct professor or lecturer positions for several years. Two partners — Allan Horwich and Richard J. Hoskins — have received awards for their teaching efforts at the Northwestern University School of Law.

Another partner, Jonathan Friedland, who rejoined Schiff Hardin earlier this year, recently accepted a position as Adjunct Professor of Strategic Management at The University of Chicago Graduate School of Business, where he will be co-teaching the class "Grave to Cradle: The Basics of Restructuring and Bankruptcies," with James H.M. Sprayregen, a Managing Director at Goldman Sachs.

In addition to teaching at business schools, Schiff Hardin attorneys also lead courses in other academic disciplines — for instance, Mark C. Friedlander teaches at the University of Illinois at Chicago School of Architecture.

Some Schiff Hardin attorneys divide their time between several academic institutions, for example, Schiff Hardin partner Bruce A. Wagman teaches at four different law schools in the San Francisco area.

Additionally, Gearold L. Knowles, a partner who has been a guest lecturer at Tsinghua University School of Law and a visiting professor at the Beijing Foreign Studies University School of Law, will be returning to Beijing Foreign Studies University as a visiting professor and has an invitation to present a seminar on energy law at another university law school in Beijing.

Meanwhile, Schiff Hardin partner Janet M. Johnson, serves as a mentors for the first class of Roosevelt University's Goldie B. Wolfe Miller Women Leaders in Real Estate program students.
