JumpStart Pre-1L Program
Entering students are invited to join their future Mitchell Hamline classmates and colleagues for our JumpStart Pre-1L Program. Faculty, staff, students, and alumni will offer interactive sessions about:
- Building community
- Developing and enhancing study skills
- The 1L experience
- Well-being in law school
They will present everything from what happens in a law school classroom to what lawyers actually do in the world and a lot in between.
Held in August each year, we offer the same programming in two modalities: in person and online.

Online Orientation Communities
Updates related to the online orientation communities will be coming in early 2023
Mandatory Orientation for On-Campus Students
Fall 2023 – TBD
Orientation includes some academic skills training, which will be led by your Legal Methods professor. But, it is primarily intended to welcome you and introduce you to the people and departments that will support you during your law school experience.
You will meet with school administrators, professional leaders, and faculty and staff, and you will hear from current students. You will have the chance to connect with representatives from a range of departments that will work closely with you on academic issues like advising and tutoring as well as offering counseling, wellness programming, disability services, cultural support, and other services designed to care for you as a person.
If you have questions about orientation, please email email@example.com.
