Public Interest Law Reporter

The Loyola Public Interest Law Reporter (PILR) is an innovative legal publication that focuses on reporting the most current legal topics in a news format directed to students, educators, and practitioners. PILR is edited and produced by Loyola students and is housed within the Center for Public Service Law. Founded in 1995, PILR offers feature articles and news of legal developments in the areas of human rights, economic justice, criminal justice, the environment, and governance. In addition to an editorial staff selected through a write-on process, Loyola law students direct all aspects of PILR's research, writing, graphics, production, and business management.

PILR also is known for its yearly Symposium - day long conference focusing on high-profile legal issues. Previous symposium topics have included, "Separate and Unequal? The Socioeconomic Realities of Public Education in America" and "Human Trafficking: A Growing International and Domestic Criminal Enterprise." This year's symposium is titled "Community Lawyering and the Campaign for Reparations for Burge Torture Victims." Click here to register for the symposium.
