Emeritus Professor of Law
Professor Heidenreich has a deep interest in the history and culture of the legal profession.
“As the longest-serving member of the Mitchell Hamline faculty and undisputed Faculty Curmudgeon, I reject ‘modern’ approaches to teaching that employ technological gimmicks, not for their pedagogical value, but because they are available. In courses that I teach, students–even those of modest ability–who do the hard, sometimes mundane, work of briefing cases, taking notes, outlining the material, and studying almost always succeed. Others do not.”
