Law Firm Challenge

Alumni at Work The Cornell Law Firm Challenge promotes financial support of Cornell Law School by alumni at leading law firms while fostering closer relationships between firms and the Law School. Any firm with five or more alumni can participate by designating Alumni Agents at the Partner and Associate levels to encourage donations with a goal of 100% giving participation. At the conclusion of the year, the firm with the highest percent participation and the top fundraising firm will be recognized as the winners of the Challenge.

Benefits Alumni Agents gain opportunities to grow relationships with fellow alumni at their firm and within the greater Cornell Law community. Firms benefit through greater visibility and recognition at the Law School, enhancing their recruitment profiles.

Gifts to any area of the Law School count toward Firm Challenge participation and provide critical resources that directly impact the experience of today's students and promote the excellence of Cornell Law School.


Winners of the Law Firm Challenge will be honored with a reception held in conjunction with the August Job Fair in New York. In addition, winning firms' names will be engraved on a trophy displayed in the Student Lounge in Myron Taylor Hall, announced in Law School publications, and displayed on the Law School website.
