Professor Kimberly West-Faulcon, James P. Bradley Chair in Constitutional Law, delivers remarks following the #InaugurationDay ceremonies at Loyola Marymount University's #LMUTeachIn. "In my view, this presidential administration will be one of, if not THE, greatest tests of the provisions of the U.S.Constitution's delineation of three separate branches of federal government, with checks and balances designed to protect the freedom and liberty of American citizens and noncitizens who live within our nation's borders."

If you watch TV or movies, you’ve seen the work of alumnae Natalie LeVeck ’11 and Jessica Kantor ’09. Both masters of “papering” Hollywood deals, they have been instrumental in negotiating and drafting contracts for a wide range of endeavors critical to everything from blockbuster movies like "Ghostbusters" and "Inception" to ground-breaking web-only series like "Single By 30." http://bit.ly/2jcQ2wT

Introduction

Loyola Law School Los Angeles opened its doors in 1920. Located in downtown Los Angeles-a legal, financial and media capital-Loyola Law School is home to prominent faculty, dedicated students and cutting-edge programs. The first ABA-approved law school in California with a pro bono requirement for graduation, Loyola Law is committed to legal ethics and the public interest, and has produced top attorneys for nearly a century.

Degrees Offered: Juris Doctor (JD); Juris Doctor/Master of Business Administration (JD/MBA); Masters of Law in Taxation (LLM); 3-year Joint JD/Tax LLM (JD/LLM)


Commitment

Students at Loyola enjoy one of the best legal educations available in the country. But you do not need to take my word for it. The Princeton Review ranks Loyola Law School (LLS) first in the nation in the category of Best Classroom Experience and fourth for Professors Rock (Legally Speaking). US News & World Reportranked us fifth for Trial Advocacy and the Princeton Review ranked us ninth for Most Diverse Faculty.   On US News' Diversity Index, Loyola ranked tenth and Hispanic Business magazine listed us among the top 10 schools for Latinos.

Employers take note of such things. Law firms from all over the country come to Loyola every year to interview our students. More than 14,000 LLS alumni work at the highest levels in law practice, government, business and public service. This is a powerful job network to have in your corner.

The Loyola Law faculty consists of gifted academics and practitioners who educate, mentor and guide our students. They are distinguished and accessible, understanding that education is a “people business” where face-to-face interaction is essential.

The Loyola public interest programs inspire students to work for social change. Our students donate over 40,000 hours a year of service to non-profit organizations. Loyola students hone their lawyering skills on our trial advocacy and moot court competition teams and in live-client clinics and externships. Numerous on-campus student organizations enrich campus life and offer networking opportunities, and the campus bustles with activity throughout the year.  Attending Loyola is not only enlightening, it is life-changing.

I invite you to visit our campus and speak with students, faculty, staff and alumni, and hope that you will pursue your legal education at Loyola Law School.

Our alumni are proud of their Loyola Law School diploma. You will be proud of yours.

Senior Vice President, Loyola Marymount University
