The Boyd Service Convocation, one of the shining events at the Law School, will be on Wednesday, April 11 at 4:00 pm in room 245. Patrick Madigan will deliver the keynote speech. Patrick Madigan graduated from Iowa Law in 1998, and is currently an assistant attorney general in the Iowa Attorney General’s Office. Mr. Madigan recently assisted in negotiating a $25 billion settlement with the nation’s largest mortgage lender.
This event honors students that have exemplified service and civic engagement by donating their time and talent to a diverse amount of programs throughout their law school experience. These students will receive the Boyd Service Award, one of the most prestigious awards that students can earn at Iowa Law. The award is named after former College of Law Dean and University of Iowa President Sandy Boyd, one of the leading national figures in Non-Profit administration and organization. Student organizations and journals will also be recognized for their service throughout the year. The Citizen Lawyer Program has itemized the hours each group has spent volunteering and quantified it into a dollar figure representing the “value added” to the community.
In addition to Mr. Madigan, there will be welcome and congratulatory remarks from Dean Gail Agrawal of the University of Iowa College of Law. Accompanying this event will be a Student Service Showase in the lobby of the law school. Both evetns are sponsored by the Citizen Lawyer Program. Refreshments will be served.
