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 20+ live-client legal clinics, whose students have dedicated more than 60,000 pro bono hours per year to helping, since 1996, over 50,000 clients. Known collectively as the Loyola Social Justice Law Clinic, these clinics share a newly renovated 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 Cindy Archer, Associate Dean for Clinical Programs & Experiential Learning. “Our new Social Justice Law Clinic and expanded offerings give our students even more ways to gain practical experience while giving back to the community."
