In 2010, Loyola Law School launched its Advocacy Institute, a program designed to give the next generation of Loyola students the practical skills demanded by the market while fostering Loyola's mission of upholding the highest standards of ethics, promoting the fair administration of justice and facilitating our commitment to serving the community. While Loyola's renowned advocacy teams, experienced doctrinal and skills faculty and extensive advocacy-related course offerings already set it apart in lawyering skills training, the Criminal Justice Concentration Program is a new academic component of Loyola's Advocacy Institute which will provide a comprehensive and unique academic experience.

Students who complete the program will have a matchless opportunity for exposure to and concentrated study in the law and skills necessary to train as an advocate in a criminal prosecution or defense setting. An important component of the Concentration Program is the intensive integrated experience wherein all students will participate in an externship or program allowing them to see the application of the learned skills to real life disputes.
