Programs of Study

Start here. Go anywhere.

We know that students have their own unique paths. That’s why the Loyola College of Law offers a wealth of options to fit each student’s goals.

We are one of the few schools in the country that can offer curriculum in both civil and common law, giving you options of practicing in Louisiana, across the country or around the world. Three joint degree programs and nine certificates in specialized fields will give you the knowledge and credentials you need to practice the type of law that interests you most. And because we know that for some going full-time is not an option due to the demands of life, we offer a part-time night program so you can get your degree on your terms. Explore the links below to learn more about the world of options you have at Loyola College of Law.
