Cornell Law School's commitment to diversity goes back to its founding vision to become a school that would provide the highest-quality education to anyone, regardless of sex or color. Its very first graduating classes included women, African-Americans (including George Washington Fields, who had been born a slave), and students who traveled to Ithaca all the way from Japan in the 1880s to study at Cornell Law.
Cornell Law School seeks to continue its commitment to diversity and inclusion by supporting alumni networks that provide channels through which alumni and students of all backgrounds can establish and build mutually supportive professional relationships.
