One of the things I appreciate most about Loyola is the faculty, and their dedication to their students. I have had numerous interactions with my professors during class time and office hours, and I have noticed that every time I speak to them regarding a question about class, to a specific topic I am having difficulty in, they are more than willing to go the extra mile to make sure I have a stronger understanding of the subject, and that I am prepared to handle these issues in the future when I am practicing.
Loyola prepares its students to be more than ready after graduation to able to apply the concepts that are learned in the classroom to real world situations that are likely to come up when working as an attorney. And it’s not just from the faculty—the career center is always helpful and available when I need to speak to them regarding potential externships, as well as interview help and resume/cover letter building.
My experience thus far has helped me gain a better understanding of the law, and that I am not just learning what the law is, but also how to apply it, and the various rationales for its implementation and the reasons why we have it. Being here has helped to reinforce why I wanted to study law and become an attorney.
