Prospective Students › Curriculum › Mitchell Faculty: Putting the law to work
You won’t find an ivory tower at William Mitchell. But you will find professors who are scholars as well as skilled legal practitioners.
From working with lawmakers at the Capital to representing clients in court to traveling the world consulting with foreign governments, our professors work outside of the classroom. It keeps them sharp. It keeps them appraised of new developments in the law. And it allows them to let students in on cutting-edge legal developments and trends.
