John O. Sonsteng

John O. Sonsteng joined the William Mitchell College of Law faculty in 1979 and immediately began working on the college's trial advocacy and other skills courses. With colleague Roger Haydock, he created more than fifty trial skills videotapes and manuals for the National Institute of Trial Advocacy (NITA) and developed the college's lawyering, advocacy and practicum classes. He received his B.A. and J.D. degrees from the University of Minnesota. Professor Sonsteng has played an active role in NITA, serving as a faculty member since 1974, regional director since 1989, and facilitating more than one hundred training sessions for the organization. He is a member of NITA's Program Director's Advisory Committee. His commitment to educating law students and lawyers was recognized by NITA with the 2007 Honorable Prentice H. Marshall Faculty Award. He was the first recipient of the "Advocate" award from the Minnesota State Bar Association for outstanding achievement and contribution to the bar. The National College of Trial Lawyers honored Sonsteng with the Emil Gumpert Award for excellence in teaching trial advocacy. Sonsteng created the NITA's first online Effective Advocate Training Program and recently published the Practicum Series Advocacy Exercises, with NITA, based on the materials he designed for William Mitchell Legal Practicum courses. He co-created William Mitchell's hands-on Business Practice and General Practice Legal Practicum courses and has taught advanced advocacy, criminal law and criminal procedure during his thirty years at William Mitchell. He was recently named director of international programs and is working with students, faculty, and alumni on codifying and expanding Mitchell's international opportunities. Professor Sonsteng was a Fulbright Lecturer in Aberdeen, Scotland and a City Solicitors Education Trust Visiting Professor in Litigation Advocacy at England's Nottingham Law School. He lectures frequently for the Labor Arbitration Institute throughout the United States. He has taught advocacy skills throughout the United States, Canada, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Singapore and Turkey. He has trained lawyers in effective advocacy skills in law firms and companies. Before joining the Mitchell faculty, he served as the elected Dakota County attorney and prior to that was an assistant Hennepin County attorney. He was the president of the Minnesota County Attorney's Association and served on the board of the National District Attorney's Association. He also has served on many public and private boards. In 2010, Sonsteng was named the recipient of the John J. McAulay Legal Educator Award, by the Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity, International. The prestigious annual award recognizes an educator whose contribution to legal education epitomizes the fraternity's ideal of a lifetime of dedication to the principles of integrity, compassion, courage, and professional service.

Again working together, they have since developed and designed the Legal Practicum: Business Practice course and materials. Before joining Mitchell, Thorstad worded as a newspaper advertising representative, a small business owner, a real estate broker, editorial assistant, geography instructor and author. She continues to be a free-lance writer.
