Mitchell Hamline is in an historic area of Saint Paul, on the Indigenous homelands of the Dakota Oyate, home to the Penumbra and Fitzgerald theaters, a diverse array of restaurants, and one of the finest chamber orchestras in the world. Just across the river, Minneapolis is the home to the Walker Art Center, First Avenue, the Guthrie Theater, the Minneapolis Institute of Art, and one of the nation's liveliest performing arts scenes. The city was the birthplace of the American Indian Movement and continues to boast one of the largest urban American Indian populations in the country. Eleven federally recognized tribes, including four Dakota and seven Ojibwe tribes, remain within the State of Minnesota. Minneapolis and Saint Paul are among the top cities for the arts and entertainment, active lifestyles, non-profit organizations, and exceptional levels of volunteer engagement.
Candidates must submit: (1) a resume; and (2) a cover letter that discusses their interest in the position and how their law-practice, teaching, research, or community-service experience have prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and excellence.
The committee will consider applications on a rolling basis until all positions are filled. To be considered for our first set of interviews, submit your application by September 1.
