Iowa Law has been in continuous operation since its founding in 1865, during which time it has conferred more than 13,000 law degrees. Today, our network of 10,000 living alumni is strong.  Our alumni work in all states and several foreign countries. The distinction with which Iowa law graduates serve their profession and their communities is a continual point of pride for all of us at Iowa Law. Just as Iowa Law is committed to supporting its students, it is committed to its alumni. We’ll respond promptly to requests for transcripts, bar exam information, and career counseling. And we invite you to come back to Iowa City for our yearly Law Reunion weekend and connect with faculty and alumni across the country.
