Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

Law school is a competitive, stressful, and at times, grueling journey. The community that Loyola Law School, Los Angeles fosters is extremely supportive and the faculty is committed helping its students succeed.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

Cons: School is ridiculously expensive. Career services is helpful, but a list of helpful tips only gets you so far. Networking events on campus would be helpful. Pros: Being in Los Angeles offers a lot of opportunity. Library area that is open for 24 hours is convenient.

Loyola Law School has challenged in ways that I never imagined possible. Of course coming into law school I knew that workload and difficulties of the classes would be high but I never imagined to be pushed to my limits as I was during my first year. I was fortunate enough to have some great professors as compared to my other colleagues in different sections. Most notably my Property and Torts Professors stand out because of their commitment to teach us to "think like lawyers" which is what a lot of professor forget to do. One of my only problems with Loyola has to be the GPA cutoff for first years, if you fall below a 2.22 then you are kicked out of the program. I think this is too harsh considering that Loyola has dropped in rankings this past year and other surrounding law schools have the GPA cut off at below 2.0.

Upon first meeting the faculty of LLS, I felt they were accessible and friendly. The school is safely tucked into a square block guarded by security.

It's a great school, but very expensive and low job prospects according to the new U.S. rankings.

This program is extremely challenging, but equally rewarding. The professors are very available and welcoming for struggling students. I would highly recommend this program for any student that wants to excel.

I love that the Loyola Law School campus is separate from the main Loyola Marymount campus. To know that everyone you see on campus is a fellow law student builds a sense of community and camaraderie. Also, because Loyola Law has such a large student body, we are able to have our own social events and the networking opportunities with Alum are endless. Also, the campus is just a short Metro ride away from the largest courthouse in the world, the Stanley Mosk Courthouse, and the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. I'm so glad that I chose to attend law school at Loyola. Yes, being a law student is challenging, but that is just the nature of the law school beast and the professors, staff and fellow students all make the challenge as manageable as possible.
