At Loyola University New Orleans College of Law, Everything Becomes Possible.
It’s a bridge between those committed to justice and the communities that need them. Between a group of strong, dedicated men and women and the experts who can shape them into lawyers. Between a world that's ready for change and the ones who are going to change it. Whether our students use their law degrees to create new companies or access public benefits for low-income clients, the Loyola University New Orleans College of Law prepares students to practice law with excellence anywhere in the world.
The full-time day program has two curricular tracks:
- Civil law, geared for students who will practice in Louisiana or other civil law or mixed tradition jurisdictions.
- Common law, geared for students who are likely to practice in other states or other common law jurisdictions.
Juris doctor students complete 90 academic hours in civil law or common law. The full-time curriculum is sequenced over a period of six semesters of resident study; this is a minimum time frame, and the program may not be completed by acceleration in two and one-half years. Full-time first-year students will be scheduled by the administration in required foundational courses totaling 15 hours in the first semester and 14 hours in the second semester.
Part-Time Day Students
The part-time day program offers a common law or civil law track. The part-time curriculum is sequenced over a period of eight semesters of resident study.
Part-time first-year students will be scheduled by the administration in required foundational courses totaling 12 hours in the first semester and 11 hours in the second semester. Any student who begins in the part-time program must remain in that program for the first academic year.
