Loyola Justice for Atrocities Clinic


In 2023, thanks to a transformative bequest, the Loyola Genocide Justice Clinic moved out of the Center for the Study of Law & Genocide where it was founded, and formally joined the Loyola Social Justice Law Clinic as the Loyola Justice for Atrocities Clinic (LJAC) under the leadership of Visiting Clinical Professor Rajika Shah.

The Justice for Atrocities Clinic (JAC) allows students hands-on legal experience in real-world, active cases and claims involving genocide and mass atrocities. Our substantive work primarily focuses on accountability for alleged perpetrators, and reparations to victims and survivors. Through the LGJC, students work on cutting edge legal issues while gaining distinctive and practical learning tools they can carry into a wide variety of professional settings.
