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 As the school does not award conditional scholarships, we do not publish conditional scholarship retention data that would otherwise be required by ABA Standard 509.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 July 2013.
Bar Passage Rate: 90.74%
259 of 294 of the class of 2012 who were seeking employment were employed. Thirty-two of the 294 who were seeking work (11%) were unemployed nine months after graduating from law school.
Employment Rate: 88%
The employment percentage includes graduates employed full time or part time in any capacity and does not include graduates who were not seeking employment. Detailed employment data (including the nature of employment, full time/part time breakdown, etc.) can be found on the Career and Professional Development website.
The fall 2013 entering class come from 80 undergraduate institutions in 26 U.S. states.
