Mitchell Hamline prepares students from all walks of life to begin serving as lawyers and leaders as soon as they graduate.
Our multiple enrollment options are designed to let you earn a J.D. without putting your other commitments in life on hold—or even relocating to the Twin Cities. In addition to full- and part-time on-campus schedules, we offer a blended option that brings you to campus a couple of times a semester and lets you spend the rest of the time completing your work online, with a schedule that you control entirely each week. Once you are enrolled, you can switch between options if you need more flexibility.
Spending just a few weeks per year on campus, you can study the law at Mitchell Hamline. And you can do it from anywhere in the world. Our four-year, part-time program has enrollment options for students living outside the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area and part-time day and evening on-campus options.
A challenging curriculum that gets you ready to practice. More than 20,000 alumni to help guide your path to your career. Whether you take classes full time or part time, on-campus or partially online, you’ll start learning the work of a lawyer by doing it. You’ll benefit from top-ranked programs in emerging specialties. You’ll be ready to make an immediate contribution in law, business, government, community service, or whatever field you pursue.
At Mitchell Hamline School of Law, we have been educating lawyers for more than 100 years but are still innovating to respond to the changing legal world.
