Welcome to the College of Law

Where do you want to go?

Wherever it is, Loyola New Orleans College of Law can get you there.  Loyola has a long history of training practice-ready lawyers through our full-time, part-time, and evening JD programs. Between our nationally ranked law clinic and our experiential course offerings, our students have numerous opportunities to work with real clients on litigation, policy advocacy, and transactional projects before graduation. Loyola’s dual common and civil law curriculum gives our graduates the preparation to practice in Louisiana, across the country, and around the globe. And our students supplement their curricular experience by studying abroad, competing on our moot court and trial advocacy teams, participating in over 20 student organizations, and of course, by enjoying the fabulous city of New Orleans.

Where will a Loyola Law degree take you? Anywhere you want to go.

The report maps evictions throughout the city based on a dataset Finger compiled through public records requests.  It shows that the most affordable neighborhoods have the highest eviction rates and makes policy recommendations to lessen displacement.
