It's true. Loyola is extremely well connected in Los Angeles. They have solid professors and many notable trial attorneys as alum including Mark Geragos, Gloria Allred, Mark Shapiro, and Johnnie COchran to name a few.
I'm always seeing professors being consulted or quotedhere or there on court tv, in journals etc. While it is true that the top percentage of students will have more opportunities, it is possible to become quite successful there even if you are not.
