Recruiting Guidelines & Policies

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.

Our Commitment

Cornell Law School’s Career Development Office is committed to serving as an integral partner to both students and employers as we work to support students in defining their career path and secure employment. We aim to help students successfully balance coursework, study periods, and recruitment. Similarly, we work to communicate clearly with employers throughout the year and set transparent and reasonable recruitment guidelines for all stages of the job search process.

In this spirit, and in response to recent NALP Recruitment Guideline modifications and feedback from students and employers, we have updated our recruitment policies effective April 2024.

Nondiscrimination Policy

All students, employers and their recruitment representatives are expected to adhere to Cornell Law School’s Antidiscrimination Policy below.

No person shall be denied admission to any educational program or activity or be denied employment on the basis of any legally prohibited discrimination involving, but not limited to, such factors as race, color, creed, religion, national or ethnic origin, marital status, citizenship, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, disability, or protected veteran status. Cornell University is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.

Concerns and complaints related to equal opportunity in education and in employment based on aspects of diversity protected under federal, state, and local law, including questions regarding or complaints arising under Cornell Policy 6.4. Cornell Law School requires all employers using the Career Development Office facilities and services to comply with our nondiscrimination policy and with applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations.
