Information for Students

The Loyola Business Law Clinic (“BLC”) is a transactional law clinic located on the 10th floor of the Corboy Law Center. The BLC curriculum is comprised of a two-hour seminar and between six and eight hours of clinic work per week. Students have the opportunity to work with experienced lawyers, counsel clients, draft contracts, form entities and communicate with government entities including the Secretary of State, the Office of the Attorney General and the IRS.

Each student in the BLC carries a caseload of approximately eight clients. Matters are assigned at the beginning of each semester; generally six of the matters involve existing clients whose matters are in process and at least one new client matter. Licensed attorneys supervise all student work and are available for questions. Students are required to exercise professional judgment and serve as advocates and counselors to their clients. In addition, students must be willing to think in a big picture way, as problems may require the student to draw from more than one area of law. 

The BLC is committed to educating effective business lawyers and allowing students to explore the legal context in which businesses operate. There is no substitute for experience and client interaction. Come join us and let us teach you how to be a transactional attorney.

If interested in applying, please send a cover letter and your resume (with your GPA) to businesslaw@luc.edu.
