World Class Chicago
A superior American city with leading law firms, as well as research, cultural and not-for-profit institutions, corporations and government agencies in virtually every area of endeavor, Chicago offers unparalleled resources for law students.
There are two major airports in the Chicago area and Loyola University Chicago School of Law is convenient to public transportation.
Loyola School of Law facilities are designed to sustain a sense of community and collaboration. The Philip H. Corboy Law Center is located at 25 East Pearson Street in the heart of Chicago's vibrant Gold Coast, just off Michigan Avenue and close to public transportation. The School of Law occupies eight floors of this building, sharing the lower levels with students from other divisions of the University. A recent renovation of School of Law facilities resulted in significantly expanded space, including new clinical and student gathering spaces, the technologically advanced Power Rogers & Smith Ceremonial Courtroom, new faculty and administrative offices, and modern classrooms.
The School of Law library, a place to study, conduct research, and collaborate with classmates, houses publications from all branches of government and expert explanations of the law in both print and electronic forms. Tables, carrels, group study rooms, and informal seating provide a variety of spaces for student use. The library's resources, including more than 400,000 volumes, enhance Loyola's broad-based law curriculum and support the research interests of students and faculty. Reference librarians, all of whom hold the JD degree, provide research assistance, teach basic and advanced legal research classes, and offer specialized research training.
