Because of Drake University's location in the heart of Des Moines, there are abundant opportunities for students to volunteer their time by providing supervised pro bono legal services.
Mark S. Cady Day of Public Service
The Mark S. Cady Day of Public Service (Cady Day of Service) is dedicated to the late Iowa Supreme Court Chief Justice Mark Cady. The Cady Day of Service brings the state legal community together to honor and to celebrate the life and legacy of Justice Cady and his commitment to public service, access to justice, and civil rights. Students have the opportunity to participate in free community legal clinics, trainings sessions, and more. Visit the Cady Day of Public Service webpage for more information. https://www.drake.edu/law/alumni/events/markscadydayofpublicservice/
