Reunion Weekend June 4-6, 2020!

Mark your calendars now and save the date!  Reunion 2020 is fast approaching and will be held on the Ithaca campus from Thursday, June 4 - Saturday, June 6, 2020.  We are making plans for a fun filled weekend for you and your family and we hope you will join us in Ithaca to visit old friends and see all the new renovations in the Law School. 

Hotel Blocks are available at many area hotels and more information can be found on our lodging page.  We encourage you to make your reservation early.

Online registration will open in April.

Are you interested in serving on your Classes' Reunion Committee? We would love to have your help organizing your class dinner, encouraging classmates to attend and support the law school. Please contact Kristine Hoffmeister (ksh54@cornell.edu or 607-255-3037) for additional information on how to volunteer.

For additional information, please call the Alumni Affairs Office at 607-255-5251 or email us at law.alumni.reunion@cornell.edu.

We look forward to seeing you in June!

Women’s Law Coalition Clothing Drive – Friday & Saturday 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM

Do you have professional clothing (suits, ties, jackets, skirts, winter coats) in your closet that no longer fit or that you just don’t wear anymore? The Cornell Law School Women’s Law Coalition will take those items off your hands and put them to good use. Law students are always in need of professional attire for interviewing, and will put your clothing to very good use. Please consider packing your ‘gently used’ professional attire to donate to Cornell Law students.
