Community at Iowa Law

Amidst the large university setting, the law school feels surprisingly intimate. The unique character of Iowa City and Iowa is reflected in the law school community—students, faculty, and staff work alongside each other in a relaxed, friendly, cooperative, and collegial environment.

The College Community

Each year, we welcome a new group of ambitious and highly talented students to our JD and LLM programs, preparing to join generations of professional and civic leaders who have shared a unique law school experience that develops analytical skills, independence of mind, and keen personal integrity. Students, alumni, faculty, and law school staff organize a number of law-centered events each year, including numerous lectures and conferences.

The Iowa City and Coralville Community

Iowa City is an ideal place to study law. It is centrally located between five major Midwest cities, yet it is insulated from the stress of larger cities, allowing scholars to focus on their work. Campus and community are side by side, making it easy to get around by foot, bike, or an efficient bus network. For more information go to:
