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.
