Journals & Student Groups

ILR Symposium

The College of Law is home to four scholarly publications that host symposia on a regular basis.

Students play a central role in the academic and professional life of the University of Iowa College of Law. Seven student-run, co-curriculum programs award academic credit for a variety of professional skills training exercises. There are more than 20 recognized student organizations within the law school, many of which actively work to enhance the professional and cultural opportunities available to students and to organize volunteer projects to provide pro bono community services.


Iowa is pleased to be home to four student-edited journals. A majority of Iowa students write for a journal during their second year of law school and many of them accept board positions during their third year.

Journal of Corporation Law
