A Message from Dean David Wippman
Preparing Today's Students to Address Tomorrow's World
As one of the country's top law schools, the University of Minnesota Law School is a leader in preparing students to use law to help solve some of the most complex social, economic, and business problems of our time. Our exceptional faculty, inventive curriculum, and unmatched clinical and experiential learning opportunities equip students to be the next generation of leaders.
Few schools can match the University of Minnesota Law School's storied history of innovative teaching, cutting-edge scholarship, and community service. Our faculty includes some of the most accomplished scholars in the world in criminal justice, international law and human rights, law and science, and business law. They are passionate about their research and committed to integrating theory and practice in their teaching; demanding in the classroom but eager to mentor and readily available to help students develop their own paths to success.
We are focused on our students' futures. Our bar passage rate is among the highest in the nation, and our students have ready access to a network of dedicated alumni who occupy leading positions in law, business, government, and the non-profit sector throughout the country and around the world. As the cost of a high-quality legal education becomes more of a challenge, student scholarship funding is the highest priority of our GENERATIONS major gifts campaign.
We are situated in a vibrant, diverse metropolitan community annually ranked as one of the most livable and affordable cities in the country. We invite you to tour the University of Minnesota Law School—on our website, or with a personal visit.
