Hamline Selected as Best Law School for Public Interest

Hamline University School of Law was recently selected by preLaw Magazine as a "Best Law School for Public Interest."   Hamline Law was awarded a B+ ranking by the magazine, joining the University of Minnesota as the only Minnesota law schools to receive such a high ranking.   

The rankings weighed schools in three categories: curriculum (which includes courses and clinical opportunities); cost of legal education (tuition, debt and loan repayment options); and placement (the percent of graduates who work in public service.) 

From its inception, Hamline Law has been known for its commitment to public law and human rights. This focus area attempts to ensure that each student develop the ability to think profoundly about whether the law achieves just results, and work effectively toward that end.
