Grateful for the scholarship support he received at Mitchell Hamline, David Dobmeyer ’16 was inspired to give back to his alma mater, where he was a three-time recipient of the Louis L. Ainsworth Scholarship. Shortly after graduation, he created the David J. Dobmeyer ’16 Annual Scholarship for Nonprofit Environmental Law.
Now an associate in the real estate and public finance division at Stinson Leonard Street, Dobmeyer received a B.A. in history from the University of Wisconsin and a master’s degree in health services research and policy from the University of Minnesota. During law school, he worked as a compliance manager for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota, was a summer associate at Stinson Leonard Street, and served on the Student Bar Association and the Law Review. He was also a judicial intern for U.S. District Court Judge Jeffrey J. Keyes.
“I have always loved public lands and natural places but feel current law and policy don’t do enough to
protect the environment. I hope the scholarship will help students who want to use their legal education to preserve and protect our natural heritage.”
