WE HAVE SHAPED MINNESOTA’S LEGAL LANDSCAPE FOR OVER 155 YEARS, AND WE BELIEVE THAT DIVERSITY IS IMPORTANT IN THE CLASSROOM, COLLEGE AND LEGAL PROFESSION
Mitchell Hamline School of Law is built on a long, rich history of providing innovative, forward-thinking, and accessible legal education. The school as it is now structured, was created in 2015 by combining William Mitchell College of Law and Hamline University School of Law.
This extraordinary union brought together two law schools that have shaped Minnesota’s legal landscape for over 155 years. Thus, creating the top law school in the Midwest for students seeking a rigorous, practical, and problem-solving approach to legal education.
Mitchell Hamline’s welcoming campus is located in St. Paul’s scenic Summit Avenue neighborhood, home to the nation’s longest stretch of Victorian mansions.
In 2014, preLaw Magazine ranked it as one of the top facilities among the nation’s law schools, calling it “comfortable and striking.”
Our classrooms are equipped with the latest technology, and students practice real world skills in several mock courtrooms. Students are able to relax and socialize in cozy spots scattered around campus. Plus, students study and conduct research in our state-of-the-art law library, named after Warren E. Burger, a Mitchell Hamline graduate and the 15th Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court.
All are welcome at our law school because we believe that diversity is important in the classroom, the college, and the legal profession. We’re devoted to increasing the diversity of the legal community by providing support, encouragement, advice, and learning opportunities to students, faculty, and staff from all backgrounds.
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.
