Welcome Alumni & Friends

Thank you for investing in Cornell Law School’s educational mission. Your volunteer work and financial gifts make our school stronger every day. As the Law faculty trains our students to become the best lawyers they can be – elite but not elitist – our graduates continue to succeed at the highest levels of legal practice, business, and public service.

Cornell Law alumni belong to law firms, businesses, nonprofits and governments all over the world.  Many visit Myron Taylor Hall for June Reunion, and many also come to this branch of the Law School’s Web site to discover how they can become newly engaged with alumni events and giving, or to increase the level of engagement they have already established.  I invite you to explore our “Alumni & Giving” pages to learn about new opportunities and to re-familiarize yourself with some, like the Law Annual Fund, that you know very well.  As always, please get in touch with our Alumni Affairs & Development staff here at the Law School if you do not find what you are looking for or, even better, if you do.

Many thanks, today and every day, for your support.
