Parents/Partners Day at UI Law School Shows Life of a Law Student

The University of Iowa College of Law's 25th annual Parents and Partners Day will be held Saturday, Oct. 19, giving acquaintances of UI law students a taste of their day.

"Parents and Partners Day is a relaxed day of orientation, education and entertainment for parents, spouses, partners, children, other relatives and special friends of current law students," said William Hines, dean of the College of Law. "The program introduces guests to the philosophy of law training at UI, exposes them to the classroom pedagogy of legal education, acquaints them with collegiate routines, and shows off the Boyd Law Building."

The schedule includes tours of the Boyd Law Building, a mock class with Professor Mark Janis, and a student panel on "Coping With the Law Student in Your Life." Evening activities include the Law School Musical.
