Student Spotlights

Emani Marshall-Loving ('20)

Midwest travels take Marshall-Loving to the Iowa Supreme Court

After a difficult interview process, Marshall-Loving was offered – and accepted – a coveted Iowa Supreme Court clerkship, which she will begin after graduation. “Professors went above and beyond to provide me with letters of recommendation and explain to judges what I could offer to their chambers. I am more than grateful for Iowa Law’s valuable insight and help, and can’t wait to discover yet another corner of the Midwest through my clerkship in Des Moines.”

3L Adam Ramadan Lorenzana goes Big[Law] back in NYC

Long Island, NY native and third-year law student Adam Ramadan Lorenzana had been to Iowa exactly once before arriving for law school.“ I’m sure things would have worked out just fine if I went back home for law school, but Iowa Law provided me with a unique experience, great faculty, and opened doors across the country. The whole ‘first Iowa, then anywhere’ saying, it really rings true.”
Paul Esker

Paul Esker finds the success he was looking for at Iowa Law

We sat down with Iowa Law 3L Paul Esker to talk about how after his time spent traveling the United States as undergrad, he returned home to Iowa for his law school journey. Esker is originally from Cedar Rapids, but lived in New York City, Washington D.C., and Atlanta to work on political campaigns before he came back to Iowa City to start law school.
