Student Spotlights

Gada Al Herz (22JD) poses on a bridge in front of the Old Capitol building.

Prepared for anything, Gada Al Herz will pursue international law in D.C.

Al Herz feels that Iowa has prepared her for a vast range of career possibilities. “I'm prepared for an international career. But I also feel like if I go out into the world and realize that I miss Iowa, I am also aware of the rural practices. I’m prepared for a big law career, while at the same time I feel like I’m prepared to work at a small practice in Iowa or a public organization.”
