Faculty & Staff
Loyola law professors are women and men from diverse personal and legal backgrounds. Many hold advanced legal degrees such as the LLM or SJD; some also have advanced degrees in business, health sciences, and other disciplines. Balancing their commitment to teaching, Loyola law professors also contribute to the legal community through extensive publishing and research. Most of Loyola's faculty members have had substantial experience in private practice or in government prior to their teaching careers. Some choose to continue to pursue legal practice on behalf of indigent clients. In recent years, Loyola professors have appeared before the Illinois and U.S. Supreme Courts and, through pro bono work, some have settled major corporate cases. Students have the opportunity to earn credit while participating with faculty in some of these cases, and gain a better understanding of the ethical and professional obligations of attorneys toward their clients.
Adjunct law faculty - judges, practitioners, and legal and business experts - also bring to Loyola's classrooms their firsthand experience with current legal and professional issues. Our part-time faculty members have many years of teaching experience. Their specialized knowledge and experience significantly enhance the depth and relevance of legal education at Loyola.
