Reunion 2023


Every fall, Iowa Law welcomes back alumni to reconnect and celebrate.  There are opportunities to visit classrooms, talk to our faculty, and tour our facilities and always a chance to tailgate and take in some Hawkeye football.  Whether you are five years out or 65 years, we hope you'll make plans to pay us a visit soon.

2023 Alumni Award Winners

Alumni Achievement and Service Awards

In 2009, Iowa Law launched an alumni awards program to recognize law alumni who have made significant achievements in their careers and in their service to the College of Law. Awards are presented annually in four different categories: Emerging Leader, Alumni Achievement, Alumni Service and the Iowa Law Review Alumni Achievement award.
