The Minnesota Law community

Our Community

Our Community: Active and Committed

Minnesota Law cultivates diverse academic, collegial, and community networking opportunities for students through a wide array of student-led events convened by student affinity organizations and groups that sponsor a large number of diversity, equity, and inclusion-focused events each year.


Meet Minnesota Law’s Student Ambassadors

Student ambassadors work with Minnesota Law’s Office of Admissions to provide outreach and make connections with prospective students who are considering attending the University of Minnesota Law School. Ambassadors help with various initiatives, including attendance at recruiting events, affinity group connections, and pipeline programs like the MN PreLaw Scholars Program and Discover Law. We are pleased to introduce some of Minnesota Law’s student ambassadors who also serve on our diversity and belonging workgroup or are a part of the Law School’s Diversity and Belonging Affinity Council.


Notable Alumni


Affinity Groups

Students also expand their networks by connecting with such Twin Cities-based professional groups as the Minnesota Association of Black Lawyers, Minnesota Women Lawyers, and the Minnesota American Indian Bar Association. Minnesota Law alumni are well represented in these organizations and provide mentoring to our students.
