RFP History of Mitchell Hamline School of Law

[The following announcement is the first time we've heard of a grant by a state historical society to a law school to support the preservation of its history--and that of the state it principally serves.]
Mitchell Hamline School of Law issues this request for proposals from qualified organizations to implement a $60,000 Partnership grant received from the Minnesota Historical Society. As part of the combination of Hamline University School of Law and William Mitchell College of Law, Hamline and the new entity, Mitchell Hamline, committed to the creation of a history center to preserve the rich legacy of each law school and predecessor schools, and the impact of faculty, staff, and over 20,000 lawyer alumni on the course of Minnesota legal history. The history center will help its constituents, its neighbors, and the wider Minnesota community understand the new institution’s colorful origins, subsequent significant historical events, its impact on its surrounding community, and its contributions to ever-evolving legal education.
