Loyola University Chicago

School of Law


Committed to excellence

Loyola University Chicago’s promise is “preparing people to lead extraordinary lives,” and it is a promise that is reflected in everything we do at the School of Law.

We are part of a Jesuit educational heritage, that while welcoming students and faculty of all faith traditions, emphasized academic excellence, ethics, and an active commitment to justice. We believe that the law is a force for positively changing society, and service to others is a theme that runs through all our efforts—inside and outside the classroom.

Our students consistently rate our faculty as exceptionally caring and approachable, resulting in a very supportive environment that helps our students succeed. In additional to challenging classroom learning, our students take advantage of multiple hands-on experiences in our clinics and through externships. Our expanded international curriculum and study-abroad programs provide solid preparation for the increasingly global practice of law, and our national recognized Centers of Excellence bring together teaching, research, service, and public policy efforts in child and family law, health law, advocacy, and other specialty areas in which Loyola leads.

Long recognized as a leader in legal education, Loyola prepares students to meet the legal professional’s constantly evolving needs—and looks toward the legal trends of tomorrow.
