About

Professor Tilley has been teaching at Loyola since 2013.  A former journalist, her research focuses on identification and navigation of the boundary between private and public law, with particular emphasis on the optimal treatment of speech and speech injuries.  In addition, Professor Tilley has studied the claim that cameras in the courtroom serve a public education function.  She has been a source in national media coverage of injuries associated with cyberspeech.  Her articles have been published in a variety of law reviews, including the University of Pennsylvania Journal of Constitutional Law and the Northwestern University Law Review.  Professor Tilley teaches Torts, Conflicts, Remedies, and Media Law.  In addition, she has developed the school’s Legal Interviewing curriculum.

Prior to joining Loyola, Professor Tilley was a Visiting Assistant Professor at Northwestern University School of Law.  She was a member of the Appellate Litigation Group at Mayer, Brown, where she worked extensively on asbestos litigation, securities class action issues, and First Amendment matters.  Professor Tilley graduated from Northwestern University Law School, where she served as Editor in Chief of the Northwestern University Law Review.  She clerked for Judge Richard D. Cudahy of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.  Before embarking on a legal career, she was a news reporter for several years, specializing in business and legal affairs at United Press International and other publications.
