Matthew Dore, Drake Professor of Law

Matthew Dore, Drake professor of law, recently received the Iowa State Bar Association (ISBA) Outstanding Section Chair Award. Dore accepted the honor in June at the association’s annual meeting. For the last two years Dore has served as head of the ISBA’s Business Law Section.

“It has been a privilege to lead the ISBA Business Law Section over the past two years,” says Dore, a member of the Drake Law School faculty since 1992.

“Serving on the Section brings me in contact with business lawyers from across the state of Iowa. Section activities help keep me current on issues of concern to business law practitioners and also inform both my classroom teaching and my research agenda at Drake.”

During Dore’s two-year tenure as chair of the ISBA’s Business Law Section, the Section organized a variety of continuing legal education opportunities for members, completely revised the ISBA Business Law Manual and advised the Iowa legislature on the adoption of several new business entity laws.
