Professor M. Isabel Medina to Publish Book Chronicling College of Law’s History


Professor M. Isabel Medina has published a book on the history of Loyola University New Orleans College of Law.  The book examines the prominent Jesuit institution across its hundred-year history, from its founding in 1914 through the first decade of the twenty-first century. With a mission to make the legal profession attainable to Catholics, and other working-class persons, Loyola’s law school endured the hardships of two world wars, the Great Depression, the tumult of the civil rights era, and the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina to emerge as a leader in legal education in the state.

The book published by LSU Press will be available in May.
