The Lawyers & Leaders series offers programs to complement the traditional legal curriculum with workshops, lectures, and other programs that focus on pro bono traditions, leadership development, practical lawyer and life skills, and community issues. Attendance at one program each semester is one requirement of the Pro Bono Society.
Opportunities with Big Brothers Big Sisters
For over a decade Big Brothers Big Sisters of Johnson County has been working closely with Iowa Law to create mentoring relationships between Law students and youth in the community.
Want a great opportunity to help out in the Iowa City community and get some volunteer hours? Consider signing up to join College of Law volunteers at the Crisis Center of Johnson County Food Bank on Fridays from 2:00-5:00 pm! We stock shelves, bag groceries, and repackage bulk items for the Crisis Center’s clients.
Each fall, the Citizen Lawyer Program coordinates the First Year Service Challenge, which encourages first-year Iowa Law students to unite with their peers to help the local community. Each of our first-year class sections is encouraged to organize a volunteer service project they will perform as a group early in the fall semester.
