The University of Minnesota Law School, located in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA, is a professional school of the University of Minnesota. The school offers a Juris Doctor (J.D.), Masters of Law (LL.M.) for Foreign Lawyers, and joint degrees with J.D./M.B.A., J.D./M.P.A, J.D./M.A., J.D./M.S., J.D./Ph.D., J.D./M.D., J.D./M.P.P., J.D./M.B.S., J.D./M.P., J.D./M.B.T., J.D./M.U.R.P., and J.D./M.P.H.

Walter F. Mondale Hall, home of the Law School on the University of Minnesota's West Bank Campus.

Founded in 1888, the Law School is consistently ranked among the top 20 law schools in the nation, with the current rank of 20th in the U.S. News & World Report "Best Law Schools" rankings, tied with George Washington University Law School and USC Gould School of Law.[2]

With 855 students, the Law School maintains a 11.1:1 student-to-faculty ratio.[3] Admission is highly competitive; for the class entering in the fall of 2012, 747 out of 3,225 J.D. applicants were offered admission (23.2%), with 205 matriculating. The 25th and 75th LSAT percentiles for the 2013 entering class were 156 and 167, respectively, with a median of 164. The 25th and 75th undergraduate GPA percentiles were 3.43 and 3.90, respectively, with a median of 3.79.[4] The five-year average bar exam passage rate was 96.91%, one of the highest in the country.[1] Tuition and fees are $40,058 for residents and $47,330 for non-residents.[1]

The Law School provides one of the nation's largest and most distinguished programs of clinical education. There are 24 legal education clinics, offering "student attorneys" the opportunity to handle real legal cases under supervision of teaching attorneys. 50 percent of law students participate in at least one clinic program, which is twice the national average.[5] In addition, over 95 percent of second year J.D students participate in either a moot court or legal journal. The Law School's 10th Dean is Professor David Wippman, former Vice Provost for International Relations and Professor of Law, Cornell University.

The school was originally housed in Pattee Hall, named after the school's first dean, William S. Pattee, who served from 1888-1911. Pattee's personal books become the Law Library’s first collection. In 1928 the school moved to Fraser Hall, named after Prof. Everett Fraser who served as Dean from 1920-1948. In 1978 the school moved to its present building, originally named the Law Center. In 1999-2001, the Law School initiated and completed an expansion of its facilities on the west bank of the University campus. This larger building was renamed Walter F. Mondale Hall in honor of one its most distinguished alumni, former Vice President Walter Mondale (Law Class of 1956).[6]

Along with Harvard Law School, University of Minnesota Law School founded the Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction (CALI) in 1982.[7] CALI has grown to include the membership of nearly every law school in the US and the organization still has offices at University of Minnesota Law.[8][9]

Employment & Cost of Attendance[edit]

According to Minnesota's ABA-required employment disclosures, 70.4%% of the Class of 2013 obtained long-term, full-time employment requiring a J.D. nine months after graduation. The percentage of graduates employed by firms of less than 10 and firms of greater than 100 attorneys was, respectively, 15% and 13.2%.[10] Minnesota's Law School Transparency under-employment score is 19%, indicating the percentage of the Class of 2013 who are unemployed, pursuing an additional degree, or working in a non-professional, short-term, or part-time job nine months after graduation. [11]

Tuition at Minnesota for the 2013-2014 academic year was $40,058 for residents, and $47,330 for non-residents of the state of Minnesota. The estimated cost of living for law students was $17,078 per year. Tuition and cost of living estimates have not yet been published for 2014-2015.[12] Assuming no tuition increases, a typical three-year course of study costs $171,708 (or $57,236 per year) for residents, and $193,224 (or $64,408 per year) for non-residents.

Law Library[edit]

The Law Library, with over 1 million volumes, it is the 7th largest of its kind in the United States. It is a division of the University of Minnesota Libraries and is open to law students 24 hours a day throughout the year. The chief librarian at the school is Joan S. Howland, who joined the Law School in 1992. Of particular note is The Riesenfeld Rare Books Research Center, which houses one of the top three collections of rare legal texts in the nation. For its millionth volume, the Law School acquired the papers of Clarence Darrow.[3]

Study abroad programs[edit]

The Law School offers a number of study abroad opportunities and, in 2006 opened a summer study program for J.D. students in Beijing. The program was originally conducted with the China University of Political Science and Law, and after two years it was changed to Renmin University (People’s University) in Beijing.[13]

The school also features semester exchange programs with ESADE Faculty of Law in Barcelona, Spain; University of Uppsala, Uppsala, Sweden; Université Jean Moulin (Lyon III) in Lyon, France, Humboldt University in Berlin, Germany; University College Dublin in Dublin, Ireland, Tilburg University Faculty of Law in Tilburg, Netherlands, Bocconi University in Milan, Italy; and Bucerius Law School in Hamburg, Germany. In Fall 2006, the Law School announced a new exchange partnership with the Universidad de Montevideo in Montevideo, Uruguay.

Publications[edit]

The school produces a number of scholarly journals. Those that are edited by students include Minnesota Law Review (the 10th most cited legal journal in the country [2]), Law and Inequality (formerly the Journal of Law and Inequality), and Minnesota Journal of International Law (formerly the Minnesota Journal of Global Trade). Faculty edited journals include Constitutional Commentary, Crime and Justice, Minnesota Journal of Business and Entrepreneurship, and Minnesota Journal of Law Science and Technology (the 6th most cited Intellectual Property law journal, 5th most cited environmental and land use law journal, 3rd most cited health, medicine & psychology law journal, and 4th most cited science, technology and computing law journal).[14] 175 students participate on a journal each year. Students at the Law School also regularly publish the humorous newsletter and harbinger of Thursday night activities, The Bar Review Weekly .

Student life[edit]

Musical[edit]

An annual highlight for the Law School is when the student body puts on its own full-length musical: written, performed, directed and produced by the all-student Theatre of the Relatively Talentless (T.O.R.T.). Begun in 2002, the event draws over a thousand audience members each year and features cameos by distinguished alumni and other distinguished members of the Minnesota legal community. For the 2006 show, "West Bank Story" (a spoof on "West Side Story"), tickets sold out within three days. Previous shows include: "The Wizard of Fritz" (2003, a spoof on "the Wizard of Oz"); "Law Wars" (2004, a spoof on "Star Wars"); "Walter Wonka and the Lawyer Factory" (2005, a spoof on "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory"); "Frankenlaw" (2007); "Robin Hood, Esq." (2008); "It's a Wonderful Law School" (2009, a spoof on "It's a Wonderful Life"); "Harry Torter and the Magical Law School" (2011); "A Midsemester Night's Dream" (2010); "Alawddin: The Tale of 1001 All-Nighters" (2012); "Back to the Future Interest" (2013); and "Clue: A Murder Mystery in Mondale" (2014). Participants are known as the TORTfeasors.

Hockey[edit]

The Fighting Mondales hit the ice during the season in intramural play, club play and rivalry games. In the fall, the Fighting Mondales square off in an adult league against several opponents, including the law school hockey teams of the Hamline School of Law's Res Ipsa, University of St. Thomas School of Law and rival William Mitchell Fighting Eelpout. In the spring, the Mondales participate in the University of Minnesota intramural season, playing their games at Mariucci Arena on the U of M campus. The season concludes with the annual law school hockey tournament, where all four Twin Cities law school teams compete for the coveted Golden Gavel.

Notable alumni[edit]

The Law School currently has 11,776 living alumni in 50 states and 68 countries [3], including 275 serving as federal and state court judges nationwide [4]. Perhaps the most famous alumnus of the Law School is former Vice President of the United States and Ambassador to Japan Walter Mondale ('56). The Law School's building was renamed Walter F. Mondale Hall in his honor in 2002. His legacy and continued participation in the life of the school earned him a most interesting honor from the school's student-run Law Council: the naming of the mascot of the Law School as the "Fighting Mondales."

Other prominent alumni of the school include:
