Minnesota's student practice rule survives graduation!
Minnesota's Student Practice Rule (SPR) gives you a powerful tool to use to worm your way into potential employment after graduation. Why? If you take and pass the first bar exam after graduation, SPR Certification lasts until until you are sworn in. (Student Practice Rule 1.03) This means that you can continue to work for your public interest organization or your public law office -- showing up every day, doing terrific work, and being the one the employer should think of first when there is money to hire a new lawyer.
Certification is terminated on the first day of the first bar exam after graduation if you DON'T take the exam. In the unlikely event that a U of MN student should fail, certification is terminated when you receive notice that you failed the bar. In addition, certification terminates if you are a student on academic probation.
