Health Justice Project
Please explore our website to learn more about the Health Justice Project! The Health Justice Project at Loyola University Chicago School of Law is a medical-legal partnership in which law students, social work students, attorneys, and healthcare providers collaborate to identify and address social and legal issues that negatively impact the health of low-income patients. Once identified, law students and pro bono attorneys in the Health Justice Project provide legal representation, advice, and referrals to remedy the legal and social issues that negatively impact health.

"You open one door and they open 10 or 20 other doors for you. The Health Justice Project keeps hope alive. I'm grateful for all that you do."
-Client’s Reflection on the Health Justice Project
“Knowing that the work I did made a difference and had a direct impact on the lives of others (after one year of law school!) is something I will take with me throughout my life. If I can do it as a first year law student, then as the years go by, I’ll be able to do that much more. Thank you for that.”
