Curt and Linda Rodin Center for Social Justice
Advancing fairness, equality, and justice
The Curt and Linda Rodin Center for Social Justice serves to strengthen and further develop several leading law school programs at Loyola that assist the most underserved members of society by offering educational training and assistance to improve their quality of life. The center also supports meaningful research and advocacy to foster systemic change and to help eradicate gross inequities in areas of basic human needs.
Launched in April 2018, the center provides learning opportunities for our students to use their professional skills to serve the most vulnerable members of our communities and to gain invaluable real-life practical training as student clinicians and agents for social change.
Eight faculty and staff members have been recognized for their work on behalf of underserved and vulnerable individuals and marginalized communities. While issues of social justice are addressed throughout the School of Law curriculum, these Loyola faculty members serve in a leadership role to mentor students, and providing meaningful teaching, scholarship, and advocacy in this area.
