Welcome to Cornell


“Cornell Law School is a rigorous and vibrant intellectual community. Our students arrive with a diversity of backgrounds and experiences. While at Cornell, they grow through their interactions with one another and with our dedicated and interdisciplinary faculty. They leave able to think about the law systematically and prepared to practice at the highest levels of the profession.” 


“The doors of opportunity have been opened through the many connections I have made at Cornell Law. I entered the legal profession confidently grounded, yet knowing no limits to success.”


Why Cornell Law?


With about 600 J.D. students, we are a
close-knit, collegial community of learners.


Last year’s graduates secured solid positions around the country and the world.


The backdrop to the Cornell Law School experience is Ithaca, a beautiful and cosmopolitan small city in the Finger Lakes region of New York state.
