Welcome to the Office of Alumni Relations!

At the Office of Alumni Relations, we are the link among alumni, students, faculty, staff, other members of the Hamline University School of Law family, and the Twin Cities legal community. We foster and encourage these relationships by organizing class reunions and regional receptions, publishing our online alumni magazine The Advocate, keeping alumni connected through a monthly e-newsletter, holding an annual golf tournament, maintaining a database of current information on alumni, planning our annual CLE symposia, and facilitating relationships between our alumni and our current students.

Calling all lawyers, near and far to join HUSLink!

HUSLink was designed to make networking and mentoring available in a flexible, timely, and customized manner. Mentors choose the types of experiences they would be comfortable and qualified to offer or discuss with protégés. Protégés may search and contact these different mentors, depending on circumstances and needs. The HUSLink program is also flexible in terms of format; following initial contact via email, it allows mentors and protégés to determine how to best proceed.
