LLX is the future of executive legal education.

/static/faq/faq-small.jpg
What is the mission of LLX?
The mission of LLX is to broaden the reach of legal education. Through our innovative delivery formats, LLX breaks down the barriers to learning the law. Traditionally, the only way to substantively learn the law was through obtaining a JD degree after 3 years of full-time study. This precluded those who had an interest in the law - but not the time availability - from satisfying their intellectual curiosity.
What is the relationship between LLX and Loyola Law School?
LLX is the Executive Education program of Loyola Law School and is wholly owned and run by Loyola Law School. Loyola Law School, established in 1920 and based in Los Angeles, is the law school of Loyola Marymount University.
Are LLX instructors all faculty of Loyola Law School?
LLX draws from the pool of world-renowned faculty at Loyola Law School, but not all instructors at LLX are faculty at Loyola Law School. In order to provide the breadth of practical legal education at LLX, we also bring to our students outstanding practitioners of law who have deep subject matter expertise in the courses provided at LLX.
Which Loyola Law School faculty member is in charge of LLX?
LLX is headed by Hamilton Chan, the Director of Executive Education and Visiting Professor of Business & Technology at Loyola Law School. Hamilton is a graduate of Harvard College (phi beta kappa and magna cum laude with highest honors) and Harvard Law School, and practiced Corporate law at the law firm of Munger, Tolles & Olson LLP.
What type of credit can I receive from taking LLX classes?
LLX courses do not provide academic credit. However, certain LLX courses may provide a Certificate of Completion and/or MCLE (Minimum Continuing Legal Education) credit for practicing attorneys. Courses that do provide a Certificate of Completion or MCLE credit will state as such on their course information pages.
Will I receive a certificate after I complete an LLX course?
Certain longer-form LLX courses will provide a printed Certificate of Completion after successfully meeting the requirements of the course. The course requirements, and whether or not a Certificate of Completion is provided, will be listed on the course information page. In general, classes lasting only 1 day (e.g., morning, noon or evening courses that meet for 2 hours only) do not qualify for Certificates of Completion. Our online courses generally do provide a Certificate of Completion, provided that the student has fulfilled the course requirements (e.g., video lessons are viewed, assignments have been submitted satisfactorily, and class participation efforts are made).
When will LLX launch?
LLX is launching in the Fall of 2018. We encourage you to sign up for our email list so that you can be notified when we do launch. Our courses will be continually updated, so keep checking back to see what new exciting courses LLX has to offer!
