The Mitchell Hamline Law Journal of Public Policy and Practice is a student-run and student-edited journal that was founded in 1976. The Mitchell Hamline Law Journal of Public Policy and Practice is the product of the merger of Hamline Journal of Law and Public Policy and William Mitchell Journal of Law and Practice in 2016. Law Journal’s charge is: “Excellence through diligence, not exclusivity.” Law Journal’s Editors work hard to produce the highest quality of legal publication available on topics relating to legal practice, legal issues faced by the public, and legal policy solutions.
Statement in Response to Recent Events in the Twin Cities
The Journal of Public Policy at Mitchell Hamline School of Law firmly and unequivocally believes Black Lives Matter, and that our legal community must rise to the occasion and work together to achieve necessary changes to our justice and law enforcement systems. We would like to express our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Mr. George Floyd. We are committed to promoting and participating in the movement towards a more equitable justice system. As a first step, we have compiled a list of resources that includes reputable news sources, local nonprofit organizations, readings for further education on the topics of police brutality, criminal justice reform, and white supremacy in the United States. Though nothing can bring back the Black lives needlessly lost, we are hopeful that together we can work towards a future where racism has no place in the justice system and the rights and lives of Black Americans are protected.
