Our motivated students
We have more than 1,100 students pursuing a J.D. The trait that best defines the student who chooses Mitchell Hamline is motivation. Whether they are second-career professionals, dreamers and idealists, recent undergrads, 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 us from Minnesota and the Upper Midwest and, through our partially online blended-learning program, from around the country and the world. Our blended-learning students need a strong self-motivation to build and keep their own personal study schedules. Many of them 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 finally earn their J.D.
