On Nov. 23, 1900, five working attorneys signed the incorporation papers for the St. Paul College of Law, which later became William Mitchell College of Law. Their vision was to make a legal education accessible to those who needed to keep working at full-time jobs to support themselves and their families. Up until 1978, when a full-time program was first piloted, all William Mitchell students attended part time, attending classes at night after completing other obligations during the day. More than a century later, Mitchell still welcome as students those who work full time but who want to pursue a law degree, and it remains as committed as ever to making a quality legal education accessible. Happy Birthday William Mitchell!
William Mitchell is 109 and doing fine!
