A robust set of clinical courses helps students move beyond the classroom into the world of practice; the Lawyering Program focuses on teaching the real-life skills employed by practicing attorneys, and externships around the country and across the globe put classroom learning into practice.

"One of the greatest barriers to attending law school is the financial burden of tuition. Scholarships help open the door to law school for people who lack such substantial means. Without Cornell alumni's generous contributions, law school would be substantially more difficult. Knowing that I have financial support helps take the stress off of paying bills, and refocuses my attention on my studies. Thank you to all the alumni who contribute."
