World-class opportunity

A leading center of law, commerce, and government, Chicago offers unlimited opportunities for you to advance your professional goals. Chicago is home to many of the nation’s top trial and transactional lawyers. You’ll make important connections with professional colleagues and the many Loyola law alumni who’ve stayed on to become the city’s leading lawyers.

Loyola is on the doorstep of legal developments in this city and has a strong alumni network here.
