Helen Meyer’s last day as a justice on the Minnesota Supreme Court is Friday, but she already has a new gig lined up.
The William Mitchell College of Law in St. Paul announced that Meyer, who graduated from the school in 1983, will join the school in the fall as a “distinguished jurist in residence.”
According to William Mitchell, Meyer will keep an office on campus, work with the school’s Child Protection Clinic, which she helped establish last year, and mentor students. Currently, Meyer serves on the board of trustees at the school and the advisory board of the Child Protection Clinic.
She joins a list of other retiring judges and justices who have joined Mitchell. Former Minnesota Supreme Court Chief Justice Kathleen Blatz served as a distinguished jurist in residence in 2006; Donald Lay, former chief judge of the Eighth Circuit, served as a distinguished professor of law from 1996 to 2000 and former Chief Judge of Minnesota’s Appeals Court Edward Toussaint is currently a distinguished professor of law.
