The week of October 24-30 is the National Celebration of Pro Bono organized by the American Bar Association. This week, we acknowledge the importance of pro bono legal work and recognize the many contributions of Iowa Law students, faculty, staff, and alumni. For example:
- 89 students from the University of Iowa College of Law are participating in 17 Pro Bono Projects with law-related nonprofit organizations and government agencies during the Fall 2021 semester.
- Class of 2021 graduates completed nearly 4,500 service hours over their law school careers.
- Iowa Law students reported over 1,500 service hours during the Spring 2021 semester.
At Iowa Law, we are committed to pro bono work and strive to instill this value in our students. We encourage and acknowledge student service in a number of ways, including the Boyd Service Award and Pro Bono Society membership.
Join us for our Pro Bono Recognition Ceremony on Friday, October 29 at 12:40. This is a Lawyers & Leaders event.
