    Volunteer/Work with the cjl

    Interested in working or volunteering with the Center for Justice and Law? Volunteers and workers support the CJL through research and event planning. For more information about volunteering and work opportunities, email Jillian Peterson at jpeterson68@hamline.edu


    Mitchell Hamline School of Law- Minnesota Justice Foundation

    Hamline undergraduate/post-baccalaureate students are now eligible to engage in volunteer opportunities through the Mitchell|Hamline School of Law’s (MHSL) chapter of the Minnesota Justice Foundation (MJF). MJF strives for justice by creating opportunities to perform public interest and pro bono legal services. Previously reserved for law students, these opportunities are now open to all Hamline University students through Hamline’s unique relationship with the MHSL’s chapter of MJF. We encourage students in all areas of study with an interest in law or justice to engage as a volunteer. 

    If you are interested in pursuing law-related volunteer opportunities, please email Susan Morrow to set up a consultation. She will evaluate your individual interests and schedule to help you find a placement. Students who volunteer extensively will have the opportunity to be recognized by the Center for Justice and Law. In addition, volunteer hours through MJF can be counted toward the service requirement of University Honors.

    Student Organization- CJL Investigates

     CJL Investigates is partnered with the Center for Justice and Law, which works to advance justice by developing creative, concrete, and equitable solutions to legal issues and policy concerns. One of CJL Investigates’ main purposes is to provide Hamline students with the ability to openly discuss current events and difficult topics, which may include mass shootings, police policy, foreign policy, and immigration. Meetings times will be posted on Facebook or emailed, so make sure you follow the Facebook page and email Amanda to be added to the member list!
