Some interesting facts about Loyola Law School Los Angeles

Loyola Law School, Los Angeles, founded in 1920, has had a profound impact on the legal profession in California and beyond. Members of its 17,000-plus alumni have gone on to become governors, US ambassadors, CEOs, Supreme Court clerks, state bar presidents, groundbreaking litigators, world-renowned scholars, and more. Known best for producing many of our nation’s most exciting and influential attorneys, Loyola instills in its graduates a deep commitment to public service and ethical practice while emphasizing the philosophical, analytical, and professional skills essential to the lawyering process. It was the first law school in California to establish a pro bono service requirement for its students, who annually give upwards of 40,000 hours of legal service to the community.

The Law School, a division of Loyola Marymount University (LMU), is housed on a campus designed for the study of law by world-renowned architect Frank O. Gehry, who has received international recognition for his work. Located on an entire city block in downtown Los Angeles, the Law School is outfitted with cutting-edge instructional technology. It includes several mock courtrooms with multiple cameras for trial and appellate advocacy practice, some of which occasionally stand in as venues for actual proceedings by the California Court of Appeals. In Loyola’s newly remodeled Social Justice Law Clinic, students and professors operate 21 clinics in a setting mirroring that of a law firm, with shared client space and resources. Loyola’s William M. Rains Law Library is one of the largest private law libraries in the western United States, providing extensive research capabilities with a collection of over 600,000 volumes and the latest advances in information technology. Additionally, its vast array of online subscriptions allows students to dive deep in researching a wide range of topics. Other amenities include a wireless-capable printing center and study rooms available for online reservation. Next door, students unwind in the Student Union, which features an entertainment center, large-screen TV, quiet lounge area, mini-kitchen, and desks.

Loyola’s central location, just minutes away from many courts, major law firms, and public interest agencies, provides excellent opportunities for our students. Students also have easy access to LA Live, an entertainment and sports venue that includes the Staples Center, Microsoft Theater, Grammy Museum, a movie theater, and restaurants.

Tell us what's important to you
yeah i did too, at the bottom
I just got that tab today too. Does that indicate possible waitlist? There’s a law school interest listed as document type and I wonder if that’s for a LOCI..?
maybe. do any admitted people have the same tab?
Nope I do not have that tab
oh man maybe WL then
sucks bc I'm above their 75ths 😭 oh well
Who knows what having the tab means tho, time will tell...
@SpottedVivaciousBobcat: just got the WL
I do see the documents tab
My entire cycle is pretty much waitlists and I'm just about to give up man
one of my admitted friends has the documents tab
so maybe it happens when your decision is rendered
accepted or WL
My header message saying "Complete and In Review" just went away. There's nothing there and now I just see my status saying: "in review." Does this mean I should expect a decision soon?? Hoping for this week omg
@RaspyScientificBobcat: that's what happened with me
That happened to me and my decision came abt a week later
Nooooo i have the documents tab i hope it doesn't mean anything-- I don't think law school interest listed as an option necessarily means loci because all of the document options are for optional prompts?
including law school interest bc i wrote that prompt
Yea it could be that. I was just looking at anything to analyze lmao 😩
i dont think it means anything
I applied to another school and document tab was there as soon as I sent the app. I think it was just an update... I hope at least
wave rn
still nothing
got waitlisted
Got waitlisted and withdrew immediately. Best of luck to the rest of you either waiting for decisions or on the waitlist. And congrats to those of you who were accepted!
Noo i'm sorry guys :( did you get an email or an update on your portal?
