Aims & Scope

The Mitchell Hamline Journal of Public Law and Policy is a student-run organization devoted to the discussion and analysis of contemporary legal and public policy issues. The Journal provides a forum for both students and the legal community to engage in scholarly thought, analysis, and writing on a wide range of areas of law affecting national and international policy issues.

The Journal typically devotes one of its bi-annual editions to alternative dispute resolution topics. Non-ADR editions often take a special theme, such as pro bono legal services. Editions may include both outside articles, authored by professors, lawyers, and judges, and student articles, authored by second and third year law students selected as journal associates.

The Journal is governed by the board of editors, which consists of third year law students. The board of editors is responsible for directing the content of the Journal, selecting both outside and student articles for publication, and preparing each edition for publication.
