I LOVE Loyola

In February we celebrate Valentine’s Day. While most take the day to let their family and friends know how much they love and appreciate them, Valentine’s Day, and February in general, is as good a time as ever to reflect on other things we “love.” Although school isn’t necessarily the first thing that comes to mind, Loyola has provided me with so much that I feel the need to talk about just some of the things that I really appreciate about Loyola.

First and foremost, the academic and experiential opportunities at Loyola are second to none. Coming to Loyola, I wasn’t entirely sure what practice area I wanted to pursue. I had some exposure to different practice areas while working in house after my 1L year but wanted to know more to make an informed decision about my future. From a class on the newest California Consumer Privacy Act to a forward-looking class on Electronic Discovery, Loyola continues to provide students with opportunities to explore new topics, always keeping up with the latest changes in the law.

One of my favorite parts of being at Loyola is the hands-on experience that students are offered. In fact, this was one of the main reasons that I wanted to transfer to Loyola. For example, most students participate in one of Loyola’s many clinics. During my time at Loyola, I was involved in the Conciliation and Mediation Assistance Clinic (CMAC) at Loyola’s Center for Conflict Resolution. This particular clinic teaches student about the mediation process and gives them the chance to do real community mediations and conciliations at the Center for Conflict Resolution. Since mediation is an integral part of the litigation process, I now have more insight into the process and its impact on a case.

There is so much more I love about my school because Loyola really has done so much for me over the past two years. From the world class faculty to classes on the most relevant legal topics, it is no wonder that Loyola attracts the best and brightest.
