In 2004, Iowa Law launched the first annual Law School Auction. This important fundraiser has since been renamed the Equal Justice Foundation Auction. It is held every fall, often on Parents and Partners Day. In addition to being the law school's biggest student fundraiser, it offers chances for gourmet dinners and activities with faculty and students and other opportunities for faculty and students to spend time outside the classroom. The evening's winning bidders provide support for law students who work in low-paid or unpaid summer positions in the public sector.
