What I Love About Loyola!

For starters, I love being a student at a law school that has such a high number of alumni working across the globe in the field. Not only is this reassuring, but I’m sure it will be useful in my career as well. So far, I haven’t come across a single firm that doesn’t have an LLS alum.

But on a more personal level, I love that Loyola’s dedication to social justice shows not just in our clinics, externships, and other opportunities offered, but through the student body as well. Loyola students are empathetic and much less competitive than movies and law school orientations make everyone to be and I mean that in the best way possible. They are understanding of other people’s situations and background and offer support. They are a diverse group with various interests and I learn from them every day.

I also appreciate all of the associations at Loyola who have tried to keep students engaged and active throughout the pandemic. It’s a difficult job, and we might not all feel motivated enough to participate as much as we otherwise would, but the student bodies continue to work hard, associations send out emails with fascinating events, and always make sure that we are getting as much of a “real” law school experience as possible.

Honestly, I hope I can update this list once we’re actually on campus because I’m sure there will be more to love.

Til next time,
