Moot court, student ambassador, vice president of the Black Law Students Association, Director of Securities Law for the Business Law Society, and Black Women Lawyers Association pipeline participant

Attending Loyola University Chicago for law school was the best decision I’ve made. The school is nothing like the law schools you read about where students are cut-throat. At Loyola, students are friendly. It’s very easy to make friends and find a study group. The professors’ offices are always open and they really want you to do well. The staff is also very friendly. The location of Loyola’s Water Tower Campus is perfect and close to the CTA’s Red Line. The alumni connection throughout Chicago is vast. Finally, the school really believes in diversity and supporting diverse students and backgrounds.
