Loyola University Chicago School of Law is a Jesuit institution that offers full and part-time JD programs, dual degree programs, and advanced degree legal programs. As an affiliate of Loyola University Chicago, the law school offers a broad-based curriculum that pulls from the interdisciplinary resources available through the university. The law school's mission is to foster the Jesuit tradition of academic excellence and a focus on service to others.

The law school's roots can be traced back to 1870 when Loyola University Chicago was established by the Society of Jesus as St. Ignatius College. In 1908, the Lincoln College of Law was founded by several Chicago attorneys who hoped to establish a union with St. Ignatius College. These plans fell into place that same year when St. Ignatius College reorganized into Loyola University. The Lincoln College of Law was established as the Loyola University Law Department. Classes were only offered on a part-time basis until 1921 when the law school officially opened a full-time day division. In 1924 the School of Law became a member of the Association of American Law Schools and the following year it received American Bar Association accreditation.

Today the School of Law is located within the Philip H. Corboy Loyola Law Center on the Water Tower Campus. The School of Law, which boasts nearly 1,000 students, offers certificates in health law, tax law, advocacy, public interest, child and family law, and international law and practice.

Students are encouraged to gain practical experience through the law school's clinical offerings which include the Business Law Clinic, the Child and Family Law Clinic, the Community Law Clinic, the Federal Tax Clinic, and the Health Justice Project. Additional experiential opportunities are available through the Loyola Externship Program for both full-and part-time students.

The School of Law's Centers and Institutes include the Beazley Institute for Health and Law Policy, the Center for Business and Corporate Governance Law, the Center for Public Interest Law, the Civitas ChildLaw Center, Dan K. Webb Center for Advocacy, the Institute for Consumer Antitrust Studies, and the Institute for Investor Protection.

With more than 30 student-run organizations, Loyola offers ample social, networking, and learning opportunities. Student organizations include the American Bar Association, the Arts and the Law Society, the Catholic Lawyers Guild, the Evening Students Association, the Hellenic Bar Association, the Loyola Pipeline Project, the Reproductive Issues Society, the Securities Law Society, and many others.

Loyola University Chicago School of Law's publications consist of the Annals of Health Law, the Children's Legal Rights Journal, the Consumer Law Review, the International Law Review, the Loyola Law Review, and the Public Interest Law Reporter.

The School of Law offers summer study abroad opportunities in China and Rome, as well as other opportunities in Chile, England, Africa, India, and Thailand.

Students and alumni are encouraged to access the Office of Career Services for a range of professional development tools including individualized counseling, mock interviews, panel presentations, interview programs, and job postings.
