Iowa Law Review The Iowa Law Review is a scholarly publication run by Iowa Law students since 1935 and is dedicated

Since its inception in 1915 as the Iowa Law Bulletin, the Iowa Law Review has served as a scholarly legal journal, noting and analyzing developments in the law and suggesting future paths for the law to follow. Since 1935, students have edited and have managed the Law Review, which is published five times annually. The Law Review ranks high among the top “high impact” legal periodicals in the country, and its subscribers include legal practitioners and law libraries throughout the world.

Like so many others, Iowa Law Review was sad to learn of the recent passing of President Emeritus Willard "Sandy" Boyd. Boyd served as the University of Iowa's 15th president from 1969 to 1981, returned as a law professor in 1996, and served as interim president from 2002-2003. The Boyd Law Building opened in 1986 in his honor. Additionally, we are honored to have published several of President Boyd's Articles throughout the years, including most recently, Iowa Law Review Centennial: Its Mission, History, and Future, co-authored with Randall P. Bezanson in 2015.

President Boyd's contributions and impact on The University of Iowa College of Law will forever be remembered. We are so grateful for his years of positive impact on our journal and greater community.

⚖️✍️Check out our latest Iowa Law Review Online piece, “Legacy and Accountability,” by Dean Ian Ayres. This piece “considers the ways that the law can help or hinder the accountability of actors and institutions. It draws two implications from the failure of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to retire at a time that would have better secured the constitutional right to abortion.” This timely Essay can be accessed here: https://ilr.law.uiowa.edu/online/volume-108/legacy-and-accountability/

I request that this online link be taken down for gross misrepresentation of the RTC v Netcom, the issues and the parties in the action. I am one of them, and a UI President's Club member. I don't appreciate being written out of history by the sloppy advocacy of Miss Asp.
