Ignatian Law Scholars

What is the Ignatian Scholars Program?

The Ignatian Law Scholars (ILS) Program recognizes particularly promising members of the entering law school class whose applications reflect the Jesuit values of commitment to academic excellence and service to others. ILS receive a renewable Dean’s Scholarship and are assigned faculty and alumni mentors to help with the transition to law school and practice.  In addition, Scholars gather for special events each semester to get to know each other and other members of the law school community.


Fall 2020 Ignatian Law Scholars

Loyola University New Orleans is proud to welcome 19 new members to the Program.

Our newest members hail from 8 states and 14 different undergraduate institutions, including two Historically Black Colleges and Universities. This cohort of Scholars reflects the diversity of the Fall 2020 class: 8 of 19 identify as a person of color and 11 of 19 are women. Our scholars are more than academic overchievers. They’ve  served in the military, clerked at law firms, and lead prestigious organizations. This group includes parents to humans and to those with fur. We have Mardi Gras krewe members, artists, and athletes. We are proud to have a talented and diverse 1L class.
