A rich variety of student activities, organizations, and leadership opportunities make extracurricular life at the Law School an excellent complement to classroom learning. The student-elected Law Council advocates for student interests and sponsors a range of programs, including approximately 40 active student groups, fostering a true "marketplace of ideas" within and beyond Mondale Hall.
For example, you can sit in on a debate on timely legal topics, sponsored collaboratively by student groups with different political, philosophical, cultural, or spiritual outlooks. Let off steam (or challenge your toughest professor!) on the basketball court, bowling lane, or hockey rink. Support public interest at the Minnesota Justice Foundation's annual talent show or at the Race for Justice 5K, a fun run and walk benefiting the Loan Repayment Assistance Program of Minnesota. Hear from distinguished alumni about their daily work in cutting-edge legal fields. Make use of your latent musical, comedic, or theatrical talents in the Theatre of the Relatively Talentless annual spring musical, which is written, produced, and performed by law students.
Whatever your personal or legal interests, the Law School invites and encourages your involvement in student activities, which develop leadership skills, foster life-long friendships, and maintain balance and perspective throughout your Law School years.
