William Mitchell College of Law and Hamline School of Law merged in January 2016 to form Mitchell Hamline School of Law. The combined school is located on what used to be William Mitchell College of Law's campus in St. Paul. 

The school is on the cutting edge when it comes to online learning. It started the first hybrid online and in-class J.D. program in the nation in 2015 and has continued to expand and improve upon it.

 “We offer the best of both worlds: A partially online program that allows students to attend law school from anywhere in the country, and a traditional on-campus program that dates back more than a century as a fixture of legal education in Minnesota,” said Peter Knapp, a longtime professor at the school who is serving as interim president and dean in 2019-2020.

The school is big on flexibility, allowing for a wide range of students the opportunity to go to law school. 

The school offers more practical externships than any other school in the Upper Midwest. That helped it secure an A- in preLaw magazine's ranking of the best schools for practical training. That, combined with its scheduling options and a robust scholarship program, make it a popular choice for students from all walks of life, the school notes.
