Visit Cornell Law School

Ithaca is located in the heart of the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. With its many gorges, lakes, and parks, natural beauty surrounds the campus. In fact, the Law School is bounded by Cascadilla Gorge with waterfalls and a short trail to downtown Ithaca.
“The close camaraderie of the student body and the one-on-one attention from professors lends to an individualized and personal education like none I have experienced before.”
Sophia Rogers '25

"Getting to prepare and give the openings, direct examinations, and cross-examinations were invaluable experiences. ... Not only did they teach me about labor law but gave me litigation experience that helped me decide [it's] something I enjoy." 
 ~Cole Quigley '25 (center row, right, with his classmates) reflects on his experience leading an arbitration that led to a client victory as part of the Labor Law Clinic.

“In just a few short months, my classmates and I have impacted real lives. We’ve helped veterans pursue the benefits they deserve and fought ‘bad paper’ discharges that have been hanging over their heads for years—sometimes decades. We owe it to our veterans to ensure they haven’t been forgotten.” 
Patrick George ’24, a founding member of the Veterans Law Practicum, reflects on the work he and his classmates have undertaken since the practicum launched in August. Now, they’re crowdfunding in the hope of making an even greater impact. Learn how you can support their efforts at the link in our bio!

Last Wednesday, Cornell Law alumni came together in New York City for the 91st annual Curia Society Dinner. The Curia Society was formed in the decade beginning in 1930, in response to discrimination against Jewish Cornell Law students. Since that time, the society continues to gather to uphold and celebrate its principles of inclusion.

We were thrilled to welcome Beth Van Schaack, Ambassador-At-Large for Global Criminal Justice, Office of Global Criminal Justice, U.S. Department of State (pictured right with Jens David Ohlin, Allan R. Tessler Dean and Professor of Law, center, and Neil Getnick, AB ’75, JD ’78), who discussed the U.S. Government's approach towards accountability for the war crimes and other atrocities being committed in connection with Russia's war of aggression in Ukraine, and the events unfolding in the Middle East.

Thank you to all who participated in this important discussion! Learn more about the Curia Society at the link in our bio. #CornellLawSchool
