Biography

Beth Kregor is the director of the IJ Clinic on Entrepreneurship. Under Beth’s guidance, University of Chicago law students take their first steps into the practice of law by providing legal advice to lower- income entrepreneurs. Beth is passionate about her clients and her causes. She has advised restaurants, moving companies and baby-sitting agencies as they navigate regulatory mazes. She has counseled a creative character factory, a lawn care business and a carpenter on their most vital plans and contracts. She also has published a study and scholarship that have set the agenda for reform of licensing laws in Illinois. She was interviewed on the REWORK podcast about the work done by the IJ Clinic on Entrepreneurship. And she has become a prominent spokesperson for low-income entrepreneurs in City Hall, Springfield and beyond. She speaks for entrepreneurs who do not normally have a lobbyist working for them in the room—the poor and the yet-to-come. She has especially focused on street food, with a passion for good tamales and hardworking vendors. Don’t get her started!

Beth came to the IJ Clinic from the law firm Sidley Austin Brown & Wood, where she practiced for several years and specialized in intellectual property litigation. Prior to joining Sidley, she clerked for the Honorable Bruce M. Selya on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 1st Circuit. Beth received her Juris Doctor magna cum laude from the University of Michigan Law School in 1999. During her time at Michigan, she served as managing editor of the Michigan Law Review and interned in the general counsel’s office of the Guggenheim Museum. As an undergraduate, Beth studied comparative literature at Yale University, graduating magna cum laude in 1996.
