Service projects introduce first-year law students to community

Members of the incoming first-year class of students at the University of Iowa College of Law will perform an afternoon's worth of community service in the Iowa City area as part of their week-long orientation session.

The activities will take place from noon to 4 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 17. Among the projects are: performing maintenance work on hiking trails around Coralville Lake, still damaged from the 2008 flood and this year's high water; pulling exotic species of brush and weeds from the banks of the Iowa River; and moving books and displays at the Johnson County Historical Society in Coralville.

They'll also clean trails at Hickory Hill Park, do chores at the Local Foods Connection's organic vegetable farm in Solon, and various maintenance tasks at the Iowa City Public Library and North Liberty Community Pantry.

The annual event is sponsored by the law school's Citizen Lawyer Program.
