In accordance with the American Bar Association (ABA) rules of accreditation, Loyola University New Orleans College of Law prohibits full-time students to be employed more than 20 hours per week during the academic year, nor does the College of Law permit first-year full-time (Day Division) students to be employed during the academic year. The Office of Career Services reserves the right not to post position listings that are inconsistent with its policies. A full-time student is defined as one who devotes substantially all of his/her working hours to the study of law. While part-time students are not bound by these same restrictions, students should allow ample time for studies because of the study of law is demanding.
Due to the ABA limitation on student employment, the Loyola faculty discourages full-time students from taking any employment during their first year of legal study.
