The University of Iowa Law Review will host a Centennial Symposium, honoring the work of Professor Herbert Hovenkamp, on October 23-24, in Iowa City. Hovenkamp, the Ben and Dorothy Willie Chair at Iowa College of Law, has authored roughly 100 articles, approximately 50 essays and book reviews, and dozens of books.
