Certificate in Civil Law and Common Law


The faculty of the School of Law has approved the creation of a program granting a Certificate in Civil Law and a Certificate in Common Law. This unique certification program is based upon Loyola’s dual common law and civil law curricula and encourages substantial study of the two dominant Western legal systems. A student choosing to complete the requirements for the certificate will acquire an understanding of the conceptual framework of each legal system. In an era of increasing recognition of the international marketplace, an individual with this understanding is well equipped to deal with legal issues from the perspective of the two legal systems that prevail throughout much of the world.
Students who desire to obtain either certificate should notify the assistant dean of admissions no later than May of their first year. For requirements, Academic Requirements and Regulations.
