We recognize the importance of community in successful learning, so our online programs are carefully designed to keep students connected to each other and to their faculty members and advisors. Online students are able to access their course materials and lecture recordings on their own schedule wherever there is an internet connection.

Learning Management System

All online classes are offered through Sakai, Loyola University Chicago’s highly interactive, collaborative online learning environment.

Access Your Course Materials Anytime and Anywhere

Students can schedule their studies at a time and place convenient to them. The curriculum is accessible 24/7 from any part of the globe. Students work through all courses simultaneously at a suggested study pace.

Students complete writing assignments and other coursework similar to that required in a campus-based program, but with the convenience of submitting their work online. Professor feedback is critical to this method.

Technology Resources and Support

Loyola University Chicago’s Instructional Technology and Research Support group provides a number of tutorials and resources for Sakai and other technology available to students.

Students can access the University’s Information Technology Support Help Desk for individual support using these resources.

  • Education Immersion Weekends

To enhance the online learning experience, Loyola hosts Education Immersion Weekends (EIWs) on campus several times each year.

What to Expect: The EIW Experience

EIWs reinforce learning objectives, provide a venue for networking, and foster communication among students, alumni, and faculty. These weekends may be held at Loyola University Chicago School of Law

Planning Your Visit to Loyola

Prior to each EIW, students should check their Loyola email for announcements about the weekend, including an agenda and instructions for RSVPs. Questions about upcoming EIWs should be directed to lawonlineadvising@luc.edu.

Students are responsible for their own travel costs and arrangements. Everything you need to know about traveling to the Water Tower Campus, local hotels, etc. can be found in Loyola's Water Tower Campus Guide. Please also review the details in the registration link of your selected EIW for information about hotel rates and the event agenda.

Compliance Certificate

Students enrolled in the JD, MJ in Health Law, MJ in Business Law, LLM in Health Law, and LLM in Business Law degree programs may pursue a certificate in compliance studies as part of their program.
