Loyola Law School, Los Angeles opened its doors in 1920. Located in downtown Los Angeles -- a legal, financial and media capital -- Loyola Law School is home to prominent faculty, dedicated students and cutting-edge programs. The first ABA-approved law school in California with a pro bono requirement for graduation, Loyola Law School is committed to legal ethics and the public interest, and has produced top attorneys for nearly a century.
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.
