A bridge between those committed to justice and the communities that need them. Between a group of strong, dedicated men and women and the experts who can shape them into lawyers. Between a world that's ready for change and the ones who are going to change it.
Whether our students use their law degrees to create new companies or access public benefits for low-income clients, the Loyola University New Orleans College of Law prepares students to practice law with excellence anywhere in the world.
The Loyola University New Orleans College of Law is a bridge.
Loyola College of Law has three major areas of specialization: Public Interest Law, Environmental Law, and International Law.
Public Interest Law
Loyola offers students many opportunities throughout their law school career to gain practical experience, while serving the legal needs of low-income members of our community.
Loyola recently received an A- ranking from preLaw magazine in recognition of our growing environmental law curriculum. Students will represent non-profit or community clients on environmental issues.
