A St. Paul landmark
Mitchell Hamline School of Law is nestled in a beautiful, vibrant, and historic Summit Avenue neighborhood just minutes from downtown St. Paul and Minneapolis.
Our students work hard, but when they find time for a break, they’ve got plenty of options.
There are dozens of restaurants and shops on nearby Grand Avenue, parks and trails to explore across the Twin Cities, energetic nightlife and entertainment options, student groups to join, and school-sponsored events that connect students with thousands of Mitchell Hamline alums who live and work in the area.
Student life on and around campus
Mitchell Hamline’s welcoming campus is located on St. Paul’s scenic Summit Avenue, home to the nation’s longest stretch of preserved Victorian architecture. In 2014, preLaw Magazine ranked it one of the top facilities among the nation’s law schools, calling it “comfortable and striking.” We occupy four connected buildings on a 6.3-acre campus that takes up a city block.
There are 25 classrooms, equipped with the latest technology. Students practice real world skills in several mock courtrooms. Students are able to relax and socialize in cozy spots scattered around campus, including Hachey Commons. And students study and conduct research in our state-of-the-art law library, named after Warren E. Burger, a 1931 graduate of a Mitchell Hamline predecessor school and the 15th chief justice of the United States.
