Cornell Tech LL.M. Program

As technology continues to transform our economy and culture, businesses need a new breed of lawyers who understand the legal and commercial aspects of new technology as well as the challenges of bringing new products and new companies to market.

Cornell Law School’s one-year Master of Laws (LL.M.) in Law, Technology, and Entrepreneurship degree program is open to practicing attorneys and recent law graduates from the U.S. and around the world. Integrated into Cornell Tech’s groundbreaking curriculum and campus, and applying the rigorous standards of Cornell Law School, the program will provide you with the specialized knowledge and skills you need to advise, support, and lead tech companies in the increasingly complex and dynamic digital economy.


The Cornell Tech LL.M. curriculum will teach you the legal principles and practical business applications needed to support and lead technology companies in the increasingly complex and dynamic digital economy. Leading research faculty and our broad network of expert practitioners will teach you the public policy and legal frameworks that promote or limit innovation. You will also learn how to analyze and address the principal institutional, legal, and business issues that affect technology-related and entrepreneurial businesses, all while discovering how new technologies are developed and deployed through Cornell Tech’s unique studio program.

Cornell Tech’s education model is dynamic, so the curriculum is likely to change from year to year. See what your schedule might look like.



The Cornell Tech LL.M. offers a year-long immersion in technology law, innovation, creativity, and new business development that will have you learning side-by-side with designers, engineers, and business students. Cornell Tech’s cross-disciplinary Studio program provides the core of this integrated experience.

Working together in teams, you’ll create new products for existing businesses in the Product Studio and develop your own new business in the Startup Studio. You will dive into studying law and transactional skills that emerging technology companies need in practitioner-led courses designed specifically for this program.

You will also have ample opportunity to network with the vibrant community of investors, business leaders, and entrepreneurial faculty members that only a city like New York and a university like Cornell can provide.

LL.M. Programs Help Lawyers Keep Pace with Technology Law

“We teach not just Intellectual Property and Internet Law, but Technology Transactions in which students learn how to move companies forward, monetize ideas and mitigate risks within our legal framework. And we couple that with a grounding in business and in product development, so students can see first-hand the challenges their future clients address every day.”
