Each December, approximately 12 Loyola law students, accompanied by members of the Loyola faculty and distinguished guests, participate in the London Comparative Advocacy Program. For two weeks, students immerse themselves in activities in London that focus on the English legal profession and system of advocacy. After a series of lectures at the Middle Temple Inn of Court, students accompany barristers to court at the historic Old Bailey and observe the court at work. Students have the opportunity to compare the English and American legal systems by meeting with the barristers, judges and court administrators to discuss the cases and the English legal profession.

During the fortnight, students are given tours of various legal institutions in London, including the Inns of Court, the Royal Courts of Justice, the Law Society and Parliament. Students also have the opportunity to spend a weekend touring some of the historic sites in the beautiful western part of England.

The London Comparative Advocacy Program is part of a two-hour, ungraded course which includes Introduction to the English Legal Profession, a one-hour course offered in the Fall Semester. Applications for the course and the program are due in July, and members of the program faculty select the participants. There are always far more applicants to the program than available spaces.
