About the School of Law
For nearly 100 years, the School of Law has offered excellence in legal education to men and women from across the country and around the world. The school's innovative, broad-based curriculum draws on the interdisciplinary strengths of Loyola University Chicago to train tomorrow's lawyers to be counselors, planners, mediators, arbitrators, judges, policy makers and litigators.
Today, nearly 1,000 students enrolled in the School of Law take advantage of classes taught by full-time faculty and by part-time faculty who are practicing attorneys in greater Chicago. Law classes take place in the Philip H. Corboy Loyola Law Center, 25 E. Pearson St., on Loyola's Water Tower Campus, just off North Michigan Avenue, Chicago's Magnificent Mile. The Law Center features classrooms and lecture halls equipped with the latest technology, facilities for legal clinics and a courtroom for practice.
Students can complement their studies by joining one or more of the more than 30 student-run organizations, or working on one of the school's six distinguished law publications. The School of Law offers an atmosphere that encourages learning while nurturing personal growth through the Jesuit ideals of service and ethics.
Law students at Loyola build strong relationships with the faculty that last well beyond their years at the school. As a result, alumni feel a strong bond to the School of Law and to each other, as demonstrated by their active participation as mentors, and as coaches and judges for student competitions. Alumni also generously support scholarships and other activities at the school.
