Why Loyola Business Law?

Loyola’s Center for Business Law offers course and instruction that are designed to educate diverse, talented students to be responsible leaders in a rapidly changing, interdependent world, while emphasizing the importance of legal compliance and ethical business conduct.  Students in the program can pursue three graduate programs and two certificates for students enrolled in Loyola’s JD degree programs.

The business law curriculum, comprised of more than 75 courses on campus and online, covers an array of topics, including securities regulation, compliance, tax, real estate, and business ethics.  The curriculum was designed with the help of an advisory committee drawn from both the business community and legal practice.

Since 1986, Loyola has offered a unique Masters of Jurisprudence degree to working professionals who seek to advance or enhance their careers through a deeper understanding of the interrelationship of law and business.  In 2013, the M.J. program moved to an exclusively online platform, allowing professionals throughout the globe the opportunity to pursue this master’s level degree. Online students participate in Education Immersion Weekends, where students from across the country gather to workshop and present thesis projects and participate in live presentations and discussions with faculty and other business law experts.
