Four 2019 graduates were honored Saturday, May 18, with Student Awards of Merit for their academic accomplishments and their commitment to stay engaged with Mitchell Hamline after graduation.
During his time at Mitchell Hamline, Scotty DuCharme ’19 served as the secretary of the Student Bar Association and advocated on behalf of clients in the Child Protection Clinic.
Julie Le ’19 was an active member of the Asian Pacific American Law Students Association and helped plan two Mitchell Hamline events this year highlighting the contributions of Asian Americans to the legal field. Le served as a mentor to students while attending Mitchell Hamline and hopes to continue that role as an alum.
Caroline Moos ’19 served as Student Bar Association president and was editor in chief of the Law Journal of Public Policy and Practice. Moos took part in the National Native American Law Students Association Moot Court competition, worked as a certified student attorney in the Ramsey County Attorney’s Office’s child protection division, and was a summer associate at Robins Kaplan.

Also Saturday, Mitchell Hamline honored its 2019 graduates for their public service. Among the 234 graduates, 130 completed 50 or more hours of pro-bono work—well beyond clinic course requirements—while attending law school.
