Renowned scholars whose scholarship has a significant impact.
Loyola University Chicago’s law faculty members have earned a reputation for excellence in teaching, publishing, speaking, and public policy. Many hold advanced legal degrees such as the LLM or PhD; some also have advanced degrees in business, health sciences, and other disciplines. Most have had substantial experience in private practice or in government prior to their teaching careers.
In recent years, Loyola professors have appeared before the Illinois and U.S. Supreme Courts and, through pro bono work, some have settled major corporate cases. Students have the opportunity to earn credit while participating with faculty in some of these cases, and gain a better understanding of the ethical and professional obligations of attorneys toward their clients.
Adjunct law faculty—judges, practitioners, and legal and business experts—also bring to Loyola's classrooms their firsthand experience with current legal and professional issues. Our part-time faculty members have many years of teaching experience. Their specialized knowledge and experience significantly enhances the depth and relevance of legal education at Loyola.
