About the Mobile Law Network
Through the Mobile Law Network, Mitchell Hamline students provide free legal assistance throughout Minnesota. The program uses a specially designed vehicle—nicknamed “The Wheels of Justice”—to transport students to support a variety of legal services, focusing primarily in the areas of family law, criminal expungements, and advance health care planning. Students provide information and assistance to those representing themselves and others who need guidance on legal matters. The vehicle is equipped with two private office spaces, allowing students to hold two simultaneous confidential meetings with potential clients.
