Academics. Justice. Service. These are the core tenets on which the Loyola College of Law is built. Nowhere are they more prevalent than in the Stuart H. Smith Law Clinic and Center for Social Justice. This fully functioning legal clinic gives third-year law students the opportunity to put their classroom knowledge to work in representing those in need under the supervision of experienced attorneys. Students gain practical experience in a number of fields while learning what it means to use the law to serve others.
In addition to the Law Clinic, students have a number of other opportunities to gain practical experience while serving others in programs such as the Street Law Program, Externships, and Gillis Long Poverty Law Center.
