Does your law school have a nondiscrimination policy that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation?

Mitchell Hamline School of Law (the "School") is committed to providing a working and learning environment that maximizes the potential of each student, faculty member and staff member. Discrimination or harassment of any sort interferes with that environment. Therefore, discrimination or harassment on the basis of actual or perceived race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex/gender, gender identity, gender expression, marital status, familial (or parental) status, disability, status with regard to public assistance, sexual orientation, age, family care leave status or veteran status or any other protected class defined by law ("discrimination or harassment") is prohibited and will not be tolerated. Retaliation against a person who reports or complains about discrimination or harassment, or who participates in or supports the investigation of a discrimination or harassment complaint, is also prohibited and will not be tolerated. Any member of the Mitchell Hamline community found to have violated this policy is subject to disciplinary or corrective action, up to and including termination or expulsion.

Sexual Orientation and the Law (3350)
Sexual behavior is an essential part of human existence. The species could not survive without it. Similarly, the law as an institution is central to modern ordered society. One might thus expect the interface between the law, as elemental definer of society, and sexuality, as essential part of human life, to be not only fascinating, but also much explored. Although indeed fascinating, the subject has only now, since the end of the 20th century, begun to attract serious academic inquiry. We will investigate a series of key issues in sexuality from various legal and jurisprudential perspectives, including contraception, abortion, homosexuality, prostitution, sexual violence and pornography. Limited Enrollment.

Does your law school offer the same benefits to faculty, staff, or student same-sex spouses as they do opposite-sex spouses?

Our benefits are for all spouses with no mention of the sex of the spouse. 

Does your law school offer any form of domestic-partner benefits to faculty, staff, or students?

No
