Mitchell Hamline School of Law seeks applications and nominations for the position of president and dean
Mitchell Hamline School of Law President and Dean Anthony Niedwiecki announced in March 2023 that he would not seek a second contract when his term expired at the end of June 2024. Niedwiecki subsequently began a sabbatical and will return to teach in the 2024-25 academic year. Professor Jim Hilbert, who served as vice dean under Niedwiecki, was appointed to serve as interim president and dean until July 2024, when a new president and dean is expected to begin.
The national search for the new president and dean commenced in the summer of 2023. The school formed a search committee and contracted with Storbeck Search. Storbeck sought input from members of the Mitchell Hamline community over the summer, through approximately 25 listening sessions as well as an electronic survey. By fall, a search profile had been developed that describes the school and the leadership agenda for the next president and dean. That document forms the basis for recruiting a talented and diverse candidate pool. The committee anticipates narrowing the field of candidates to a group of finalists in late 2023 or early 2024. Members of the Mitchell Hamline community will be invited to interview the finalists and share input that will be factored into the board of trustees’ selection of the new president and dean.

Additionally, the president and dean will embrace the following opportunities and challenges:
- Unifying the community around a vision for the future while fostering a shared culture of stability and mutual respect: In addition to the upheavals faced by all organizations over the past few years due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Mitchell Hamline continues to find its footing in creating a unified culture after the 2015 combination of William Mitchell College of Law and Hamline University School of Law.

More about Mitchell Hamline
Mitchell Hamline School of Law was born out of a 2015 combination of the William Mitchell College of Law and Hamline University School of Law, and its history and legacy are profound.
One historical stream of Mitchell Hamline School of Law goes back to the 1900 founding of a night law school for working people who needed an alternative to daytime law school. Five notable St. Paul lawyers worked tirelessly to form the Saint Paul College of Law. The College received ABA approval in 1938. Former Justice William Mitchell of the Minnesota Supreme Court was its first dean. In 1958, Saint Paul College of Law merged with the Minneapolis-Minnesota College of Law to become the William Mitchell College of Law School. William Mitchell became known for its pioneering work in practical legal education, including highly ranked clinical programs and centers in Native American law, children and the law, intellectual property, and law and business.
The second historical stream that became Mitchell Hamline began when Hamline University started offering a program in legal education soon after its founding in 1854. The initial program was short-lived, as when the Civil War broke out in 1861, most of Hamline’s students joined the Union Army. Hamline’s second venture into legal education began in August 1974, when it became home to a new law school organized by about three dozen law students attending the proprietary Metropolitan School of Law in Minneapolis. Fearing that their law school was not advancing toward ABA approval, the students met at the Normandy Inn in Minneapolis in December 1972 to found a new law school built from the ground up. The Metropolitan students recruited judges and lawyers to assist in establishing the new Midwestern School of Law. In 1975, the school became an official part of Hamline University, and the ABA provisionally approved it the same year. Hamline University School of Law inaugurated one of the country’s first weekend part-time J.D. programs. It became primarily known for its public service focus in areas like children’s legal issues and its highly ranked Dispute Resolution Institute and Health Law Institute.
In 2015, the two law schools combined to form Mitchell Hamline School of Law—and the commitment to experiential learning, innovation, and accessibility became a hallmark of the curriculum. Standing on the shoulders of its predecessors, Mitchell Hamline School of Law leverages a long, rich history of providing innovative, forward-thinking, and accessible legal education. This extraordinary union brought together two law schools that had shaped Minnesota’s legal landscape for more than a combined 155 years, creating the largest law school in the region and the top choice for motivated students who want to pursue a rigorous, practice-based legal education in a way that fits their lives. With approximately 20,000 alumni and over 50 faculty members, the new law school is leading the way in innovating new legal education opportunities in its blended programs and experiential education in particular.

Location and regional highlights
Located just minutes from downtown St. Paul and Minneapolis, Mitchell Hamline School of Law is nestled in the beautiful, vibrant, and historic Summit Avenue neighborhood, home to the nation’s longest stretch of preserved Victorian architecture. There are dozens of restaurants and shops on nearby Grand Avenue, parks and trails to explore across the Twin Cities, energetic nightlife and entertainment options, student groups to join, and school-sponsored events that connect students with thousands of Mitchell Hamline graduates who live and work in the area.
The Twin Cities is an ideal place to go to school and a great place to live, work, and play. Minnesota has earned external accolades and has been recognized as the second-best state in the nation for natural environment, infrastructure, and healthcare. St. Paul and Minneapolis have a thriving economic climate with a highly skilled and educated workforce. The region has among the lowest unemployment rates of the country’s large metro areas, and some of the world’s most recognizable companies are based here, including 3M, Target, Cargill, Best Buy, Ecolab, UnitedHealth Group, and General Mills. The Twin Cities is home to 18 Fortune 500 companies.
The Twin Cities are also active. There are miles of trails, dozens of lakes, the winding Mississippi River, and acres of parks in the metro area to enjoy. And with skating, skiing, snowshoeing, and ice fishing, winter does not put an end to outdoor activities. The Twin Cities arts and culture scene also has plenty to offer, with myriad options for live theater, live music, and dance. There are dozens of art, science, and history museums spread throughout the community. Finally, St. Paul and Minneapolis are a sports lover’s dream, with professional baseball, football, basketball, hockey, and soccer teams.
Mitchell Hamline is a top law school for dispute resolution and health law and a nationally recognized pioneer in clinical programs. It offers a multitude of legal education programs, combining legal theory and training with other professions, such as business and public health. The school also prides itself on offering courses not widely available, notably providing expertise in Native American Law and Sovereignty.
In January 2015, Mitchell Hamline became the first ABA-approved law school in the nation to offer students the chance to earn a law degree through a hybrid blend of half online and half on-campus instruction. The program, termed “blended learning,” is particularly noteworthy given Mitchell Hamline’s trailblazing approach; because the school was the first, it has had the time to build on technological platforms and continuously improve instructional techniques. Given the program’s popularity and success, the school extended the hybrid J.D. program format to an Executive J.D. and a weekend option, including a popular case-study workshop component in which students learn firsthand from lawyers and participants in actual cases. All programs allow students who otherwise could not obtain their J.D.s to access and thrive at Mitchell Hamline. This is particularly salient for students who live in states without law schools and whose life commitments preclude an out-of-state move for a three- or four-year stint. Today, 60 percent of students enroll as blended learning students.
With deep ties to the local community and Minnesota more broadly, many students opt to complete their J.D.s on campus. On-campus enrollees can earn a traditional J.D. in three years as a full-time student or continue to work full time and earn a J.D. as a part-time day or evening student. Campus classrooms use modern design and technology to enhance learning, providing students with spacious work areas to make room for collaboration. Professors can access the latest high-tech teaching tools, allowing them to better engage and interact with students during their lectures. Mitchell Hamline also boasts a model courtroom/classroom design that gives students an authentic courtroom experience. They are highly versatile, filled with adaptable technology and modular furniture that allows for a number of courtroom and classroom setups. Today, 40 percent of students enroll in the on-campus program.
The American Bar Association, Council of the Section of Legal Education and Admission to the Bar, accredits Mitchell Hamline School of Law. The school is also a candidate for accreditation with the Higher Learning Commission, a historically regional accreditation agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.

The Center supports scholarly, professional, and creative work that seeks to foster social justice for Black people.

The trait that best defines the student who chooses Mitchell Hamline is motivation. Whether they are second-career professionals, dreamers and idealists, recent undergraduates, or individuals with a compelling personal history with the law, they choose Mitchell Hamline for a reason and with a goal in mind. They come to Mitchell Hamline from Minnesota and the Upper Midwest and, partially through the online blended learning program, from around the country and the world. Blended learning students need self-motivation to build and keep personal study schedules. Many have used that motivation to complete their four-year J.D. program a year or more early. Many people whose law school ambitions have been on hold for years while raising a family, establishing a career, and investing in their communities have found Mitchell Hamline to be the only school where they could earn their J.D. in a fully supportive and collegial setting.
