Helping future lawyers become skilled, global-minded, and culturally competent professionals.
The Office of Diversity and Inclusion works with the Mitchell Hamline administration, faculty, and staff to create an environment where students feel comfortable expressing their racial, ethnic, gender, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, religion, and all other dimensions of their social and cultural identity. We offer a number of programs and services that help students build a vibrant learning community, as well as explore the law from different perspectives.
We believe that diversity, in all of its forms, benefits the classroom, the college, and the legal profession. Mitchell Hamline is a welcoming and respectful community where individuals can explore differences in a safe and positive environment, and where students not only learn from their professors but also from the diverse life experiences of their classmates.
This summer Mitchell Hamline School of Law had the honor of hosting the 2017 CLEO Pre-Law Summer Institute. Thirty-eight students from 23 states attended the month long program that gives them a head start on their law school careers. The students completed condensed courses in Legal Writing, Diversity and the Law, Stress and Time Management, Torts, Contracts and Civil Procedure. They also conducted a mock trail and enjoyed some fun and entertaining off-campus social activities.
We are elated to report that all 38 students successfully completed the program and have now been admitted to law schools across the country. Better yet, 11 will be joining us as 1L’s here at MHSL.
