Cornell Law School combines inspired teaching with cutting-edge scholarship in a close-knit and collegial intellectual community. Our faculty have long upheld the principle that law must be studied within the context of its ultimate humanity. As part of a great American research university, they recognize that this principle demands the same dedication, enthusiasm, and critical spirit that infuses all liberal study.

Our students thrive in a diverse and resource-rich atmosphere that is intellectually invigorating, professionally supportive, and forward-thinking. This is precisely why we are known for producing well-rounded lawyers and accomplished practitioners cut from a different cloth – “lawyers in the best sense.”

Note: Our law school adheres to the educational objectives set out in Chapter 3 of the accreditation standards of the American Bar Association. These standards may be viewed in detail here.
