Loyola purchases Dominican Conference Center

September 10, 2008

Loyola University New Orleans announced the purchase of the Dominican Conference Center at 540 Broadway Avenue from the New Orleans Female Dominican Academy.

The building, which was purchased for $2 million, will continue to be used as a conference center and house offices for the College of Law, as well as the Stuart H. Smith Law Clinic and Center for Social Justice.

Dean Brian Bromberger predicts the law clinic will relocate in fall 2009, after a renovation. Some clinic staff have already been working from the building in temporary spaces. The clinic’s current space in the College of Law’s main building on Pine Street will be returned to the law library.

The Law Clinic is a fully functioning legal clinic which allows third year law students the opportunity to represent indigent clients under the supervision of experienced attorneys. By participating in the law clinic, student practitioners have the chance to experience representing clients firsthand, and an opportunity to further the Jesuit ideals of scholarship and service at Loyola by providing legal representation to the needy.

The Law Clinic will include one classroom, several research and interview rooms and offices.
