Loyola's JD Day Program is a three-year program for full-time law students. Classes are offered from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., allowing students flexibility. Students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of exciting extracurricular activities sponsored by student groups and administrative departments at Loyola.
Breadth and Depth The Loyola curriculum offers students a breadth of class choice and depth of concentration in their area of legal interest. Required classes cover the foundations of law, exposing you to different types of law and providing you a foundation for you to pass the bar. With 325 elective courses - from Bioethics to Immigrant Rights - to choose from, you can explore your areas of legal interest, starting in your first year.
The Loyola curriculum is organized around Concentration programs for several major practice fields. These "law majors" allow students to pursue focused study in a chosen field - both intellectual study and practical learning - including one semester of simulation or live-client experience. The Concentration programs equip students with a comprehensive understanding of a practice area. Students will receive training needed to work dynamically on the job in chosen field. Since employers look to hire new associates who are more practice-ready, Loyola's Concentration programs groom students for today's job market.
For a less structured approach to study in other areas of the law, Loyola has developed Integrated Courses of Study to provide students with guidance in course selection, and practical experiences available to prepare them for practice in areas such as health care law, law and the political process, family law, and others.
