School of Law

Law and Literature Lecture

The Law and Literature Lecture is a tradition that was developed in conjunction with Loyola's "Great Books" Seminar. The "Great Books" Seminar was established to provide an opportunity for law students to discuss law-related literature with the faculty and staff. 

In recent years, the School of Law has featured programs that focus on works by Shakespeare and how they relate to the law.
