Emerita Professor of Law
“I love to practice law. I see many students experience the practice of law for the first time in the 16 student legal clinics and externships that Mitchell Hamline offers. As co-director of the clinics, my goals are to provide an education grounded in practice, help every student develop sound ethical judgment for responsible practice, and lead them to discover their strengths as good lawyers.”
