A wide variety of off-campus opportunities
Earn credit outside of the law school by working with practicing attorneys in the community. Mitchell Hamline offers students a variety of externships that provide valuable hands-on learning experiences and residency opportunities for students in their third or fourth years to secure long-term, on-site placements working under the supervision of practicing attorneys.
Students work across a range of practice areas and legal settings. They work with public defenders to preserve the rights of the accused, with state and county agencies to shape public policy and protect society’s most vulnerable, with federal judges to ensure the judicial system is just, and with numerous other partners. Students in externships are supervised both by Mitchell Hamline faculty and by attorneys and judges in the field.
At Mitchell Hamline, we offer a variety of opportunities for students in their third or fourth years to secure full-time, on-site placements working under the supervision of practicing attorneys. It’s a key part of our bridge-to-practice programming, offering experienced students a close-up look at the world of legal work.
