Ken Coyle joined the SJCL staff as the Manager of Information Systems in 1998. It quickly became apparent that Ken was exceptional at his job. His ability to think outside the box and anticipate SJCL’s needs made him an incredible asset to the law school. At the young age of 34, Ken lost his battle with cancer.
Ken had a gentle heart and a quick wit that endeared him to students and staff with whom he came into contact. When computers were on the fritz, frustrations reaching maximum, you could walk into Ken’s office with your problem and with a shrug of his shoulders and a “sure I can do that” you knew your problem would be solved. He was always available to students whenever a technical problem needed solving.
In memory of Ken, the Student Bar Association created a scholarship for students who have a background in information technology or demonstrate an interest in intellectual property law.
