Wishing everyone in our community a happy and safe holiday season!❄️ #CornellLawSchool #holidayseason #happyholidays

"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. 

This Giving Tuesday, when you direct your support to Cornell Law School's clinics and practicums, you can enhance  experiential learning opportunities, just like these! Visit the link in our bio to make an impact today.
