Cornell Law School’s robust and thriving experiential learning program traces its roots back to 1960. Today, it is an essential part of our educational mission, encompassing twenty-three clinics and practicum courses and an extensive array of externships and simulation courses.
Entrepreneurship Law Clinic students recently met with Benjamin Plotke and Jiayan Wu (from left), the owners of Lev Kitchen.
The clinic began working with the Ithaca-based food service business in the spring of 2021, and has continued to help them sort through the regulations and permits required for an expanding restaurant. #Cornell.law.school #CornellLawSchool #CornellLawClinics @levkitchenco
On June 5, 2022, the government of Malawi issued a press release announcing that President Lazarus Chakwera had commuted the death sentences of 22 death row prisoners. The move came after years of campaigning by human rights advocates in Malawi and beyond, including a petition authored by two students of Cornell Law School’s International Human Rights Clinic.
This year we celebrated 90 years of the Curia Society. Cornell Law Professor Nelson Tebbe was the featured speaker and presented “Originalism and the Roberts Court” during the annual dinner celebration.
History of Curia Society: founded in response to discrimination against Jewish Cornell Law students by legal fraternities that excluded them, they formed an unrestricted club. They named it “Curia” to implement Myron Taylor’s belief that law should serve a wide range of social needs.
