The Loyola Social Justice Law Clinic

LMU Loyola Law School's unparalleled commitment to social justice is reflected in the variety and richness of its 21+ live-client legal clinics, whose students have dedicated more than 30,000 pro bono hours per year to helping, since 1996, over 74,000 clients. Known collectively as the Loyola Social Justice Law Clinic, these clinics share a 23,000-square-foot facility that simulates the experience of a law practice with several specialties, thereby giving students practical experience working in a law-firm setting. 

"Loyola’s mission has always focused on serving the underserved,” says Elizabeth Bluestein, Executive Director. “The Social Justice Law Clinic provides our students even more ways to gain practical experience while giving back to the community."
