ISBA President Bruce Walker welcomed approximately 140 freshman law students at the University of Iowa College of Law Aug. 16.

He issued three challenges to the students: 1) Complete your education; 2) Serve clients, and 3) Engage in the ISBA. He also told the students not to forget themselves and their families, to keep a sense of humor and not to take themselves too seriously.

"Your first year is critical to your career,” he said.

Traditionally ISBA presidents welcome incoming law students at both U of I and Drake University. Due to obligations that required Walker to be out of town, ISBA Vice President Steve Eckley welcomed the incoming freshman at Drake University Law School on Aug. 17.
