As a Jesuit law school, Loyola University Chicago is deeply committed to the service of others.

"Social justice goes to the core of our mission," said Dean Michael Kaufman.

As a result, Loyola’s Centers of Excellence are among the most highly regarded in the nation. Its child law and health law programs in particular prepare students to excel in these areas of advocacy. It has one of the top ranked health law programs in the country.   

Among its innovations is the school’s commitment to experiential learning, giving every student a chance to tackle a clinic, participate in an externship or try simulation coursework. Loyola is also one of the leaders in offering simulation courses. 

It recently revamped its part-time J.D. program into a weekend program, where students attend classes on 14 weekends and take online classes. It is one of only four schools that offers distance education. 

"We are committed offering a part-time program that is identical to the regular program, except for schedule," Kaufman said. "Innovation is important to the future of legal education.” 

Loyola’s century-old commitment to the study of law also has given it the reputation for producing some of the best litigators and trial attorneys in the area.

Students appreciate the school’s campus in Rome, Italy, as well as programs in London and Beijing.
