An Iowa Law education opens doors near and far. As graduates of the nation’s oldest law school in continuous operation west of the Mississippi River, many of our students choose to stay and serve here in the Hawkeye State, making a difference in the lives of Iowans from all walks of life. Many others take the Iowa name to communities and workplaces far beyond Iowa’s borders. Whether they remain in Iowa or go elsewhere, and whether they put their degrees to work as private attorneys, legislators, judges, prosecutors, public defenders, community leaders, counsel for small nonprofits or large Fortune 500 companies, or something else, Iowa Law’s graduates make us proud.
This video and these interviews tell the stories of a few of our alumni. We invite you to join the conversation by posting your own #firstiowa stories on Twitter or Facebook, or by e-mailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll share it. For the next few weeks and months, we'll keep releasing new interviews from this year’s featured cities—Washington, D.C., San Francisco, and Chicago—as well as sharing stories about our Hometown Hawkeyes.
If you’d like us to come to your city for a round of interviews, please contact Jill De Young.
