Law in Practice Program Recognized as a National Innovation Leader in Practical Skills Training  

Minnesota Law's Law in Practice Program, which provides 1Ls with the opportunity to develop real-world practice skills, was recently recognized by Bloomberg Law as a national leader in innovation in the field of experiential education.
2L Jack Tate, who is now an LiP student instructor, says participating in the program during his first year of law school was a huge confidence boost.

“It was the first time I could really envision myself working as a lawyer. I had never done anything like that before, and it forced me way outside of my comfort zone."
Suzanne Mead, also a 2L and a student instructor, says the LiP program is "really good way to experience something in a safe environment. Now when I go into practice, I’ve gotten the nerves out of the way."

The full story, which will appear in the spring edition of Minnesota Law magazine, is available now for viewing on our magazine's digital platform.
