Parents & Partners Day

The 43rd Annual Parents & Partners Day program will take place virtually Saturday, October 17, 2020.  This event is a high point in the Law School’s fall activities. 


The day is planned as a relaxed day of orientation and education for parents, spouses, partners, children, and other relatives and special friends of current law students.  The program introduces your guests to the philosophy of law training at Iowa, exposes them to the classroom pedagogy of legal education, and acquaints them with your collegiate routine.  It is expected that you will add your personal touches to the program.
