Wellness & Safety

Our Jesuit tradition teaches that education occurs in the context of total human development. 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.

Below are some of the services we provide to help ensure your well-being while in law school; we also encourage you to reach out to us directly with any concerns or issues you have regarding or impacting your law school experience.
