Admission to Loyola’s MJ program is competitive. The MJ Admissions Committee seeks applicants who will bring a broad range of backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives to their legal studies and who aspire to become leaders in their field. Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree and a minimum of two years of experience in a field working with, on behalf of, or otherwise focused on children, youth and families.
Applicants for the MJ Degree in Children’s Law and Policy must complete an online application available on our website. Applicants must also provide Loyola with:
- official transcripts from all colleges and universities attended,
- two letters of recommendation from persons familiar with their education or work experience,
- and an essay or writing sample.
Qualified applicants are reviewed by the MJ Admissions Committee on a rolling basis. Students may begin the program in either Fall (September) and Spring (January) term.
