Loyola University Chicago School of Law alumni remain committed to the success of the advocacy program even after graduation. Alumni act as coaches for our student competition teams, as well as guest speakers and mentors to current students. Alumni are vital to the success of the program. In 2002, Loyola established the Circle of Advocates, a group of prominent Chicago attorneys who support the advocacy program by serving as mentors for law students, promoting high ethical standards, hosting lectures, and establishing scholarships for students who plan to pursue careers in advocacy.
