Mitchell Hamline School of Law utilizes several means to communicate information, announcements, and opportunities to the law school community. The primary tools are listed below.
Each student is provided a Mitchell Hamline email account after the fee and enrollment agreement is submitted to the law school. Students are responsible for all information communicated through this official Mitchell Hamline email account. Students who encounter malfunctions with that account should contact the Information Technology department for assistance ITHelp@mitchellhamline.edu.
B. Mitchell Hamline School of Law Website
The Current Students page of the Mitchell Hamline website includes substantial information that will be relevant to students from the first year through graduation. Students should check this website for course and registration information, exams scheduling, accommodations, academic calendars, and much more. Access to webpages of specific offices, services, and programs is available through the Departments tab located on the left side. The school posts information about weather related campus closing or other adjustments to normal operations on this page.
In addition to email, The Docket section of the Current Students page is another important informational resource. Students are responsible for information posted on The Docket and are expected to check it routinely. Students will receive postings via daily email digests. Students may submit an announcement on The Docket by filling out a Submit Student News Announcement form.
C. Law School Catalog
The Mitchell Hamline School of Law Catalog contains the official publication of academic and student affairs rules, policies, and procedures of the law school. It is updated on an annual basis but changes can be made at any time during the year. Students will be notified of changes via email and one or more announcements posted on The Docket.
Students who wish to propose changes to the Catalog must submit their proposals to the SBA Executive Council of the Student Bar Association for review. If the SBA Executive Council deems a proposal worthy of further consideration by the faculty, the Student Bar Association President will then present the proposal to the Dean of Students within 30 days of the date the proposal was submitted to the Executive Council. Proposals received between the academic year (Summer/Winter) will be presented to the Dean of Students within 30 days of the date of the first day of the Fall/Spring Semester. The Dean of Students will review the proposal and within 30 days of receiving the proposal, make a recommendation to the appropriate faculty committee on whether to adopt, reject, or amend the proposal.
