Career & Professional Development: facilitating valuable introductions
Mitchell Hamline School of Law’s Career & Professional Development Office is as much for employers as it is for students. If you are in need of well-qualified, field-tested students and graduates for externships, internships, clerkships, full- or part-time positions, you have come to the right place.
Mitchell Hamline follows the NALP guidelines for law placement and recruitment process and encourages employers to do the same.
There are a number of ways we support your hiring needs:
Free job postings
After creating an account in Symplicity, our career and professional development database, you can post job openings, free of charge, for as long as the position remains open.
We coordinate your job searches and interviews from start-to-finish at any time of year. We handle all the arrangements—reserve an interview room, collect resumes, and schedule interviews with students you select so you can hire when you are ready to hire.

Mitchell Hamline’s Legal Residencies are culminating work experiences that bridge students from law school to legal practice and the professional legal community. Students are placed inside of law firms, businesses, government offices, courthouses, and non-profit organizations where they put into practice all that they have learned throughout law school and gain a deeper understanding of the role of lawyers in our society and legal system.
Legal Residencies provide students with an opportunity to achieve their individualized learning goals and gain practical, real-world experience during their final year of law school and seamlessly transition into their roles as legal professionals.
If you are interested in establishing a legal residency opportunity for a Mitchell Hamline student at your law firm, office or business, please contact Mitchell Hamline’s Dean of Career and Professional Development Leanne Fuith at email@example.com.
