Law School and University Resources
As small law school in the midst of a large university, Cornell Law School offers the best of both worlds - an intimate, scholarly environment within which to study the law, and an array of resources capable of serving the needs of thousands. The following links contain information which we believe will be of the greatest use to our students, but this list is by no means exhaustive. If you seek information or assistance not readily accessible from these links, please contact the Office of the Dean of Students.

Law school, like the practice of law itself, provides an almost unique level of intellectual stimulation. However, it is also a demanding endeavor that requires enormous investments of time and effort, which can cause anxiety and related problems.
Among law schools, Cornell Law School is a leader in recognizing that teaching habits which foster good health and effective time and stress management skills is a critical part of legal education.
Our students are encouraged to take part in the many cultural, athletic, spiritual and artistic opportunities that the Cornell University campus and our surrounding community have to offer.
We also encourage our students to seek assistance whenever a physical or emotional problem begins to develop - early diagnosis and treatment always being key to good health.
