Diversity and Inclusion

Cornell Law School is among the nation's most inclusive top law schools and has been since its founding. Our multidisciplinary approach to legal education plus our dynamic campus community makes for an environment where all students have the tools to excel.

As you make your final decisions about law school, you may be wondering whether you will meet other students at Cornell who share your particular background.

Chances are, you will. Cornell Law students come from all over the United States and the world. Many are the first in their families to attend law school or even to earn advanced degrees.

In short, you will not have to look far to find others who share your experiences. You can also expect to meet others with vastly different viewpoints, interests, and approaches to the law.

This will not only enrich your educational experience, it will make you a better lawyer as you learn to consider perspectives different from your own.

At Cornell Law School you will be challenged personally, academically, and professionally. Yet you will also find a close-knit and supportive environment that encourages you to pursue your goals and seize new opportunities.

Whatever your story, when you come to Cornell, consider yourself at home.

A Welcoming Community
