Welcome to Student Affairs!

Supporting the mind, body, and spirit.

Student Life at Loyola University New Orleans College of Law is based on the philosophy that education occurs in the context of total human development. Development of the whole person involves not only the intellectual development of the student but also the cultural, moral, physical, social, and spiritual development of the individual as well.

Our mission is to provide each of you with the resources, support, and guidance necessary to achieve personal and professional success both while at the law school and beyond. We are available to you to address academic, personal, and professional issues you might experience during your law school career. Law school can be stressful. It can also be demanding—not just on you, the student, but also on your friends and family, partners and children. We are here to help you manage your priorities, cope with anxiety and stress, and get the most out of your time while at Loyola and in New Orleans.

A sampling of the services we provide are listed below. We encourage you to reach out to us with any concerns or issues you have regarding or impacting your law school experience.


Counseling Services

Students are encouraged to contact Carol Magendie, the Chaplain and Interim Coordinator of Student Life, in Room 102 of the Broadway Activities Center (magendie@loyno.edu; 504-861-5494). Additionally, Loyola University New Orleans offers all students the resources of a full service Counseling Center on our main campus in Room 208 of the Danna Student Center. The University Counseling Center can be reached by phone at (504) 865-3835.

Disability Services

Loyola University New Orleans values and appreciates the diversity that students with disabilities bring to the university; a philosophy that embodies our core values and supports our strategic plan. The Office of Disability Services (ODS) is available to provide appropriate and reasonable supports and modifications so that students may access and fully participate in the College of Law. Access is achieved through the development, administration, and coordination of programs and services that eliminate barriers of any type for students with disabilities.

The services provided through ODS are in accordance with Section 504 of the 1973 Rehabilitation Act and the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act and its subsequent amendments. The use of ODS’s services and support are at your discretion. Moreover, the accommodation process is entirely confidential; no information is communicated without your express written permission.

Please see the ODS website for a list of services ODS offers, documentation guidelines, accommodation procedures, FAQs, and contact information. ODS is located in Room 112 of Marquette Hall on the University’s main campus. Any questions regarding eligibility for disability accommodations should be addressed to the Director of Disability Services, Richelle Voelker, or the Special Needs Counselor, Laticia Barthe. They can be reached by phone at (504) 865-2990 or by email at rvoelker@loyno.edu and lrbarthe@loyno.edu.

ODS is the office responsible for determining eligibility and appropriate reasonable accommodations for College of Law students with disabilities. Upon the grant of an accommodation, and with the student’s permission, ODS works with the College of Law’s Interim Coordinator of Student Life, Carol Magendie, to implement the accommodation at the law school.
