Innovation. Integration. Impact.
Advocacy is the heart of a Loyola law education
Led by Director Zelda Harris and consistently ranked among the country’s best programs, Loyola University Chicago’s Dan K. Webb Center for Advocacy uniquely integrates elements of advocacy throughout the law curriculum. All 1Ls serve as mock trial jurors and bailiffs or audience members for moot court, and every student is required to complete eight credits of advocacy skills and experiential learning courses. Students with a deeper interest in advocacy apply for the prestigious Philip H. Corboy Fellowship Program, earn an advocacy certificate, or try out to compete in national and international competitions. Students are financially supported in their advocacy efforts through several scholarships available from 1L through 3L years.
The engagement and strong sense of community continue after graduation: Loyola’s professionally prominent competition coaches and mentors—including many alumni—loyally return year after year to sharpen the skills of the next generation of Loyola litigators.
