Join LLS on LinkedIn
Loyola Law School rebooted its LinkedIn presence in 2014. Below is a quick guide to the offerings.
Overview: In 2014, LinkedIn began offering colleges the opportunity to create special University Pages. Loyola launched its University Page in spring 2014. The page works as an umbrella page for all of those whose LinkedIn profiles include the Law School. Currently, more than 11,300 LinkedIn users are connected to Loyola’s University Page – more than 9,100 of them as alumni. Others are connected because their LinkedIn profiles identify them as Loyola staff members, professors or in some related capacity.
Features: Loyola’s University Page allows users to easily sift through Loyola alumni via a wide variety of criteria, including company, job type and home city. Not surprisingly, LA ranks No. 1 on the list of home cities. But rounding out the top 10 are Orange County, San Francisco, San Diego, New York City, Washington, D.C., Seattle, Sacramento, Las Vegas and Denver – in that order. Work categories range from Legal and Entrepreneurship to Media & Communications and Healthcare Services and more. Results are organized based on the individual user’s degrees of connection to the other members. It’s a great way to find old connections and make new ones. The University Page is also a good source of LLS information; the Law School regularly posts event information, alumni offerings and the dean’s messages.
You can reach Loyola’s University Page via a variety of pathways:
- Direct link.
- Type “Loyola Law School” into the search box at the top of the page. The results box will include a category called “Universities” where you will see Loyola Law School listed next to its logo.
- When you log into LinkedIn, you may be automatically directed to the University Page based on your noted affiliation with the Law School. Ensure that you have identified your affiliation with Loyola properly in your LinkedIn profile as “Loyola Law School, Los Angeles.”
Note: As a LinkedIn requirement, Loyola maintains a LinkedIn Company Page that provides a very basic listing of Loyola. This is not to be confused with the University Page.
OFFICIAL ALUMNI PAGE
Overview and features: The “Loyola Law School, Los Angeles Official Alumni Group” is the Law School’s official alumni LinkedIn presence.
