Loyola University New Orleans is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Chief Justice Pascal Calogero, J.D. ‘54, H’91.

Justice Calogero attended Loyola during his undergraduate years. He graduated first in his class from the Loyola University New Orleans College of Law in 1954 and was President of the Law Review. He went on to a distinguished career, serving on the Louisiana Supreme Court for 36 years and serving as Chief Justice for 18 of those years.

Among his various honors and recognitions, in 1991 Loyola bestowed upon Justice Calogero an honorary doctor of laws, honoris causa. In 2008, Justice Calogero received the Integritas Vitae award, one of the university’s highest honors, translated literally as a “life of integrity.” He also received the 2013 St. Ives Award, the highest honor awarded by the College of Law Alumni Association.

He spoke of his life of service to the legal community and fond memories of Loyola Law School at the St. Ives luncheon, in Loyno magazine, Loyola at a Glance newsletter, and other Loyola publications. As an alumnus, he judged law student Moot Court competitions, served on the College of Law Visiting Committee, spoke frequently at the law school, and taught as an adjunct professor.

“Justice Calogero was a man of integrity and intellect, warmth and wisdom. Loyola University is eternally proud to claim him as our alumnus,” said Tania Tetlow, President of Loyola University.

“In his passing, we have lost a legal giant, a dear friend to Loyola, and a champion of justice,” said Madeleine Landrieu, J.D. ’87, H ’05, Dean of the College of Law.
