ONE OF THE COUNTRY’S TOP PUBLIC LAW SCHOOLS, the University of Minnesota Law School is a leader in preparing students to solve the complex social, economic and business issues of our time. Our exceptional faculty, innovative curriculum and unmatched clinical and experiential learning opportunities equip students for the demands of the 21st century.
We are distinguished by a rare collegial culture that emphasizes teamwork, problem solving, leadership and persuasion. Students learn to think analytically, to identify the core element of a complex problem and to develop real-world solutions—skills that are essential beyond law school for all fields of employment. Public service is at our core. Our students embrace it, our faculty and staff reinforce it, and our community benefits from it.
Our faculty includes some of the most accomplished and productive scholars in the world in business law, criminal justice, international law and human rights, and law, science and technology. A large, active network of alumni in the Twin Cities and around the globe is eager to mentor, teach and hire our students.
