Reunion 2023

Alumni Reunions

Each fall, Iowa Law alumni gather in Iowa City 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're five years out or 65 years, we hope you'll come back to visit.

2023 Alumni Award Winners

Back to Iowa

Back to Iowa (BTI) began as a unique and special effort between African American alumni, BLSA and the College of Law to provide granular, real-life and real-time information to Iowa law students about the practice of law and the legal job market. BTI has been lauded for its high-level of candor and commitment to diversity.


Pregame Cookouts

Pregame cookouts are hosted each fall at the Boyd Law Building, thanks to our generous sponsors. Join us two hours prior to kick-off to meet up with alumni, faculty, and staff. We'll have the usual fare including cheesy potatoes! If you are interested in learning more about sponsoring a cookout, contact Pam Funke.
