Loyola University Chicago School of Law is a college of Loyola University Chicago in Chicago, Illinois. Established in 1909 by the Society of Jesus, a Roman Catholic religious order of priests known as the Jesuits, the School of Law is located in downtown Chicago on prime real estate within walking distance of the landmark Water Tower (only surviving downtown building of the Great Chicago Fire), John Hancock Center (one of the tallest buildings in the United States), Holy Name Cathedral and the Magnificent Mile of North Michigan Avenue.

Student body

The School of Law currently occupies the Loyola Law Center at 25 East Pearson Street. The Law School previously occupied Maguire Hall, at One East Pearson, but switched buildings with the Loyola University School of Business Administration in the fall of 2005. Each day, its student body of over 1,000 congregates at the Water Tower Campus to be taught by full-time and part-time professors who are also the leading jurists of the City of Chicago and State of Illinois. Students are also involved in over thirty student organizations and six distinguished law publications.

Academics

There are fourteen major degree programs offered at the School of Law: doctor of jurisprudence (J.D.), master of laws (LL.M.) in either business law, child and family law, health law or tax law. Students may pursue a master of jurisprudence (M.J.) in either business law, child and family law or health law. There are two major doctoral degrees: doctor of juridical sciences in health law and policy (S.J.D.) which is the highest degree any attorney may obtain in the United States and the doctor of laws (D.Law). Dual degree programs are offered with the Loyola University Chicago School of Social Work (J.D./M.S.W. and M.J./M.S.W.), Department of Political Science (J.D./M.A.) and the Graduate School of Business (J.D./M.B.A.).
