MITCHELL HAMLINE

WHO WE ARE

For more than 100 years, Mitchell Hamline has been committed to experiential, practice-based learning, shaping legal education to meet the needs of our students and the legal community.

We believe that diversity, in all of its forms, benefits the classroom, the college, and the legal profession. Mitchell Hamline is a welcoming and respectful community where individuals can explore differences in a safe and positive environment, and where students not only learn from their professors but also from the diverse life experiences of their classmates.

Mitchell Hamline School of Law provides a legal education for all of its students grounded in legal theory and distinguished by exceptional practical legal training. A forward-thinking, independent law school with a history dating back more than 100 years, we have continually shaped legal education to be relevant to our students, their future clients, and the legal profession. We are committed to making legal education accessible and offer an unmatched number of enrollment options. Our students graduate prepared to put their degree into practice or use their legal training in the profession of their choice.

THE COUNCIL ON LEGAL EDUCATION OPPORTUNITY, INC.

WHAT WE DO

The Council on Legal Education Opportunity, Inc. (“CLEO”) is a national organization that was founded in 1968 to expand opportunities for minority and low-income students to attend law school. Since its inception, more than 10,000 students have participated in CLEO’s programs and joined the legal profession.

CLEO’s flagship program is the Pre-Law Summer Institute, a rigorous, residential program designed to familiarize and better prepare students to succeed in law school. The Institute has been held on various law school campuses every summer since 1968.   Additional workshops and seminars are offered for high school, college, and graduate students interested in pursuing a legal career. Once enrolled in law school, CLEO Fellows become part of a national network of outstanding, talented lawyers.
