Law School Student Alcohol Policy

Students seeking to use Law School or Law School-administered funds for the purchase of alcohol for a student event must:


Contact Linda Majeroni to request a copy of the Student Event Information Form.

Expenditures over a certain amount will need approval from the Dean of Students but will be discussed once form is submitted.

  • Either hold the event in question at a properly licensed commercial vendor or retain the services of a licensed caterer, in addition to complying with Cornell University Policy 4.8 and the Campus Activity Office's policy for graduate/professional student organizations.
  • All on-campus events where alcohol is being served  MUST also  complete an Event Registration Form 4 weeks prior to the event---no exceptions.
  • For off-campus hosted events serving alcohol, transportation must be budgeted and provided unless the venue is on the TCAT Route #10 (downtown) bus.
