Loyola named one of the Top 25 schools for public interest law by The National Jurist
The National Jurist named Loyola Law School one of the Top 25 school's for public interest law based on a variety of standards. This year, the magazine placed a heavy emphasis on curriculum, which included courses, clinical opportunities and faculty, with more than half the score based on experiential opportunities. The order of the ranking will be announced in the magazine's March issue.
Loyola's commitment to public service runs deep in its history. Loyola is the first ABA-accredited law school in California with a pro bono service requirement for graduation. Today, the student body completes an average of 40,000 pro bono hours each year. Loyola's many centers and clinics provide legal assistance to the underserved in the Los Angeles community and beyond: the Alarcon Advocacy Center, Cancer Legal Resource Center, The Center for Conflict Resolution, Center for Juvenile Law & Policy and the Loyola Immigrant Justice Clinic, are a few of the school's offerings.
