Information about the Mitchell Hamline Mentor Program
It’s time to sign up for Mitchell Hamline Mentors
As Dean Fuith mentioned in her letter to you a few weeks ago, Mitchell Hamline first-year students participate in a group mentor program designed to help you transition successfully into law school and start networking and exploring career opportunities beginning in your first year. Students are assigned to a mentoring group with two other first-year students, one 2L peer advisor, and two alumni co-mentors.
Please complete the survey below telling us about your main interest area, and we will do our best to place you in a mentor group where one of the alumni mentors works in that area. Given the large number of teams, we’re not always able to do that. We’re confident, however, that all our mentors have information of value for you, regardless how they use their J.D.
To make scheduling activities easier, you’ll be placed in teams with other 1Ls in your section, so your class schedules are the same. We also try to place part-time students in mentor groups with at least one alumni mentor who attended part time, and we recognize that time constraints will necessarily reduce the number of events and time part-time students will have available for mentoring activities.
Students will meet their mentoring team at a kick-off event on Tuesday, September 13th for Sections 1, 3A, and 3B and Wednesday, September 14th for Sections 2A, 2B, and 4. Please save the appropriate date on your calendar. Thereafter, full-time students are expected to make a time commitment of 1-3 hours per month to plan and participate in activities and meetings with your mentoring group (as noted, this may be less for part-time students), including visiting a mentor’s workplace, having an observational experience, joining your team members for a happy hour or coffee, getting feedback on your resume or interview skills, and tapping into your mentors’ networks.

ParkingParking passes are required to park in all Mitchell Hamline parking lots. Students in their 2nd, 3rd, and 4th years can purchase a parking pass for the Summit Lot in August prior to the start of classes. There are a limited number of passes sold for these lots. Students may receive a free parking pass for the Grotto lot. Students are also able to park on St. Paul City Streets around the school, making sure that you pay close attention to signed and unsigned parking restrictions. Passes can be requested by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Unless a student is going out of town for a school related activity, no overnight parking is allowed in the law school parking lots. Overnight parking must be approved by David Hellerman, email David at email@example.com.
LockersLockers can be rented for $50 per year. You will need to fill out a request form at the security desk at the main entrance of the school. You will need to provide your own lock. Lockers are rented on a first-come, first-served basis and a notice will be sent to all students at the beginning of each fall semester to alert them to the application period.
Book lists will be found on the Black Board page for each course.
Once you choose the course names, you will be asked to select the section number. Be sure to buy the exact edition of the book listed, older editions will vary greatly and page numbers will not be the same as the edition your professor lists. The bookstore is located in the lower level of the school. Stairs leading down from the commons/food area will take you to the bookstore.
Campus Alert System
Earn part of your law degree while living in a foreign country. As a student of Mitchell Hamline, you can choose from several summer, J-term, or semester-abroad programs.
Application amendments and updates
If, after enrollment, you recall or are made aware of an incident that you should have disclosed upon application, you are required to disclose this information to the school.
Students who enroll at Mitchell Hamline are required to disclose violations of the law until graduation from Mitchell Hamline. There are two exceptions: (1) parking violations do not need to be reported; and (2) moving violations that do not involve drugs or alcohol do not need to be reported. Note: Parking or moving violations that indicate a pattern of conduct should be disclosed. Generally, a single incident during your law school career falls within the exceptions.
The demands of law school can place stress on individuals, relationships, and work and academic performance. Mitchell Hamline School of Law provides counseling for no initial cost and a $25 copayment thereafter. This is short term counseling with a maximum of 10 sessions. Students who are not able to pay the $25 co-pay may be able to arrange for a lower cost. Counseling Services can also provide assessments and referrals when appropriate. Discussions are confidential and can be reflective of personal concerns as well as those of an academic nature. Students use Counseling Services for normal life concerns as well as feeling of crisis. The therapists are experienced and licensed professionals, not otherwise connected with Mitchell Hamline School of Law. Counseling Services also provides regular presentations relating to things such as Stress Management, Time Management, Enhancing Test Performance, and Mental Health/Chemical Dependency issues. Please call (651) 290-8656 for information on scheduling an appointment.
