The University of St. Thomas School of Law is the youngest law school in Minnesota. Therefore, it seems at times that the school is still perfecting its teaching methods/course offerings. However, the school more than makes up for this potential disadvantage by offering a mentor network that is second to none. Alumni and other individuals in the professional legal field are readily available to assist UST Law students. With nearly enough registered mentors to give each student 2 full-time mentors, St. Thomas ensures that students have the best access to real legal experience and advice. In a job market where who you know is almost more important than what you know, St. Thomas is one of the top law schools in the Midwest, if not the nation.

The law school is young, but they've made great strides in their short 11 years. The faculty are accomplished and I feel like I'm getting a great legal education. The atmosphere of the school is much more community driven than most law schools and there is a level of trust and camaraderie among the students that I don't think is the norm in other law programs across the country. And the mentor externship program is great practical experience as well as a networking opportunity.
