Four Drake University law students offered legal assistance to more than 30 homeless veterans during the Veteran's Administration StandDown last month.
Republican and Democratic student groups at Drake Law School will band together with the bipartisan Iowans for Fair and Impartial Courts on Tuesday, Oct. 5, for a community forum. The event, which is free and open to the public, will focus on Iowa's court system and the influence of campaign money and politics in judicial retention elections.
This year's recipient of the community service award was David McCord, professor of law at Drake Law School. McCord is a founding organizer of the Meals from the Heartland program at Drake, which attracts nearly 4,000 volunteers per year to package more than 4 million meals in five days to deliver around the world.
