Life at Cornell Law

The kinds of students who choose to study at a small law school nestled in the middle of the Finger Lakes are the kinds of people comfortable forging their own paths.
“Because of its location in a small city, Cornell Law nurtures a sense of community and belonging and encourages long-lasting friendships.”
Fouad Debs, LL.M. ’19
