Recruitment Policies

Statement Regarding offer consideration period for 1l Summer, 2l summer and permanent positions - march 2020

In light of current market uncertainty, while our formal recruiting policies remain in place, we realize that employers may require additional flexibility during the 2020 recruiting season.  We therefore request, in cases in which compliance with our formal policy is deemed impractical by an employer after due consideration, that our students be given an offer consideration period by that employer no less favorable than the period granted to students of any other law school.


2020 Recruitment Policy
On December 12, 2018, NALP eliminated its long-standing guidelines related to the law student recruiting process.  Cornell Law School has decided to adopt the NALP guidelines as they existed immediately prior to their elimination as our own.

Nondiscrimination Policy
The Cornell Law School is committed to a policy against discrimination in employment. The facilities of the Career Services Office may be denied to employers whose behavior contravenes our faculty policy prohibiting discrimination based on race, color, creed, religion, national or ethnic origin, citizenship, ancestry, sex, gender (including identity or expression), sexual orientation, marital status, age, disability, or protected veteran status. We require all employers using the Career Services Office to comply with our nondiscrimination policy.
