Journalist Law School

Hear JLS faculty and fellows describe Loyola's Journalist Law School.

L‌MU Loyola Law School is offering fellowships to professional journalists who have a minimum of three years of experience as a journalist.

The challenge of reporting on the legal system without a law degree is daunting. To help support journalists who cover the courts on national, regional or local levels, the Civil Justice Program at LMU Loyola Law School has developed the journalist law program consisting of a four-day intensive seminar on the legal system. Lectures, lodging, and most meals are covered by the program. Please consult the program overview,  information on past Journalist Law School (including alumni) or the JLS flyer for further details.

The 18th-annual Journalist Law School fellowship is expected to be held in-person, subject to evolving public health guidelines, from August 2-5, 2023 on our campus in downtown Los Angeles. The deadline to apply was 11:59 p.m. PT on Sunday, March 12. Application review has begun; admissions status updates will be shared beginning in April. Fellows are expected to stay at the Omni Los Angeles Hotel in downtown L.A. Curriculum details will be shared as known.
