In Memory of Professor Randall Bezanson

The Iowa Law Review joins the College of Law and legal community in mourning the loss of Professor Randall Bezanson.

He published more than a dozen pieces with the Review, served as our faculty advisor, and was influential in starting the Iowa Law Review Bulletin. He was dedicated to the College of Law and a committed teacher and mentor to hundreds of students.

A service will be held from 4-6 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 15 at the Levitt Center for University Advancement. If you wish to share a memory or tribute to Professor Bezanson, please follow the link below.
