Career Services for Employers

We're here to help you build and strengthen your relationship with our students through job fairs, on- and off-campus interviews, event sponsorship, and job posting services.

Why a Cornellian

Our students enter the law school with academic talent. They leave the law school with the tools to become excellent lawyers.

Through our clinical courses over 135 students a year learn practical skills by representing clients in a wide variety of areas, from custody disputes to death penalty appeals. Annually, 40 students spend a semester away from Ithaca, working full time under the supervision of non-profit and government attorneys at organizations nationwide.

Over half of the second year class is involved with one of our three legal journals: the Cornell Law Review, the Cornell International Law Journal, the Journal of Law and Public Policy. In addition, many serve as editors on Cornell’s Legal Information Institute and participate in the activities of the Moot Court Board.

The life of the law school and wider Ithaca community involves many students. With over 25 student-run organizations, from the Black Law Students Association to the Environmental Law Society, our students are able to get involved with issues that matter to them. Because many employers like to communicate with these organizations directly, we’ve created a listing of all student organizations with email links to each of their student leaders.
