Planning and executing an event is the responsibility of the individual or team who propose to hold the event. All School of Law events (outside of day-to-day or internal group meetings) must be approved by Law School administration through the Event Request Form linked below before any event support, marketing or planning can be done.

Event Approval Process

In an effort to maintain a robust event calendar and ensure that events do not compete with one another, all faculty, staff and students are required to complete the Event Request Form linked here: https://luclawschool.formstack.com/forms/school_of_law_event_request_form  

Requests will be processed within 2 business days. This process ensures that events do not conflict with one another and streamlines event assistance/marketing requests.

Event Types
  • General Events are a part of the day-to-day life of the School of Law.  They draw an internal audience and often require only a room reservation, available classroom technology, an announcement, and minimal or no budget.  Examples of these events include student organization meetings and brown-bag lunch lectures.
  • Major Events require more time and planning and often are higher-profile.  These might draw audiences internally, from Loyola alumni, or from the wider public. They will often require elements such as media and technology support, advance invitations, advertisements, catering, housekeeping, etc.  Examples of these events include conferences, symposia, receptions, and dinners.
Need Additional Resources?

The Law School Events working group may be available to assist in coordinating logistics and marketing materials for FAN events, major colloquia, symposia, or other internal group events.

If your event falls under the “Major Event” category detailed in the above section and you would like to request additional assistance, please complete the required Event Request Form linked above and indicate your potential needs. The form includes a list of questions regarding additional event support including technology needs, registration, marketing, etc. Form submissions will be reviewed within 2 business days. Completion of this form does not guarantee additional event support.
