The Mitchell Mix
Mitchell students come from a variety of backgrounds.
You may find yourself in a health law class with a nurse practitioner or in an intellectual property class with someone who has secured patents.
Every student brings a unique perspective that enhances discussions and allows the law to be viewed from different angles, which is how it’s practiced in the real world.

William Mitchell has a robust scholarship program that provides a collection of scholarship opportunities to a variety of students. Last year, we were able to award 100 percent of our incoming students a renewable scholarship.
Applications for admission are thoughtfully evaluated for both admission and scholarship awards. Scholarships are awarded based on a range of factors including previous academic excellence, professional experience, military service, other service and leadership experience, personal background and experiences, and interest in particular areas of the law.
Notification of a scholarship award is included in an offer of admission. All scholarships are offered for the duration of a student’s enrollment provided retention requirements are met.
Students retain their scholarships as long as they remain in good academic standing (cumulative GPA of 2.00 or better). As the school does not award conditional scholarships, we do not publish conditional scholarship retention data that would otherwise be required by ABA Standard 509.
Based on graduates who took the bar exam for the first time in Minnesota in February 2014 and July 2014.
Bar Passage Rate: 81.01%
Detailed employment data for our graduates from the past three years can be found here. Page 2 of the ABA Summary Report for 2013 graduates includes definitions that help make page 1 of this report more meaningful, but we encourage you to contact us if you have questions about the data or the ways in which Mitchell prepares its graduates to pursue work that is meaningful to them.
