The Loyola College of Law is one of the few schools in the country that offers curricula in both civil and common law, giving you options of practicing law in Louisiana, across the country, or around the world. Four joint degree programs and seven certificates (as of fall 2021) in specialized fields will give you the knowledge and credentials you need to practice the type of law that interests you most. And because we know that for some students going to law school full-time is not an option due to life's demands, we offer part-time night and day programs so you can get your degree on your terms.

Here's why we're unique.

What's "Experiential Learning"?


One of the most important aspects of Loyola's Jesuit education is experiential learning. In the first year, students research, write and advocate for clients in simulated cases as part of the Lawyering Program. By the third year, students are working with real clients and trying real cases.

Advocacy Center

Through coursework and while participating in intramural and intercollegiate moot court and trial advocacy competitions, students build and perfect the art of persuasive oral advocacy and the skills of proficient brief writing.



Externships give students the opportunity to combine classroom learning with real legal practice. Students earn course credit while placed with judges, government agencies, and legal nonprofits across the region.


Law Clinic

In the Law Clinic, students practice under the supervision of faculty in areas including immigration, family, children’s rights, criminal defense, workplace justice, prosecution, technology and legal innovation, and community justice.


When our graduates leave us, they leave with the real-world experience they need to start their careers.
