In and out of the courtroom, you can make a difference.

Make a Difference

LMU Loyola Law School welcomes alumni volunteers. Giving your time and talents helps the school reach its goals —and the experience is meaningful, rewarding and fun. Volunteer opportunities include:


Share your Law School experience with students. Registration for this program typically opens in August and matching is done in September. The program will conclude at the end of the academic year in May. However, mentoring is open to continue if the pair has a pleasant connection and experience. The mentor program does not require alumni to log hours or meet a specific time commitment. Instead, the mentor and student are free to determine how often they should meet or communicate based on what works best for the pair. Meetings can be as informal as getting together for coffee, lunch or perhaps writing a quick email to each other.

Office of Admissions

Help Loyola’s Office of Admissions recruit and enroll talented and diverse students. Alumni can represent Loyola at recruiting fairs throughout the country, contact incoming students to answer questions or host/attend regional admitted student receptions.

Admissions Retention is a program through the Admissions Office where alumni, faculty and current students can reach out to newly admitted students. If you are interested in speaking to admitted applicants, please fill out the form and send it back to Nancy Cardenas. The goals are to pair admitted students with alumni along the following commonalities: undergraduate school, geographic location, division and other commonalities. Alumni participating in the retention project designate when and how many students they want to contact.

Serving as Judge

This is your chance to sit in the judge’s chair. Alumni are needed to serve as judges for the National Civil Trial Competition (NCTC), sponsored by Greene Broillet & Wheeler. The NCTC is an invitational tournament open to all ABA-accredited law schools who have demonstrated excellence in mock trial competitions and/or demonstrated excellence in the training of law students in litigation skills. The tournament allows students to develop and display civil litigator skills. Students are required to perform opening statements, direct- and cross-examination of expert and lay witnesses and closing arguments and argue objections based on the Federal Rules of Evidence.
