Degree: Law

Cornell Law is a great investment in yourself. It's hard work and you can't expect any less. You feel very much like you're not here to make friends but to succeed career wise only

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

The best part about attending Cornell Law is the small class size and the type of community it creates. Not only is it easier to get to know my fellow classmates, but it is so easy to access professors and administration. The close knit atmosphere really does help—especially when stressed out with classes.

Cornell Law is exactly what you want from a T-14 law school, excellent teachers, intelligent peers, and legitimate help with finding a job. I haven't been disappointed, and I know that I went to the best place to start my career.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

The faculty and the small setting of the law program provides a familial feel and collegial environment. The faculty members are brilliant and because the school is so small, you can make connections with professors and it is easy to build relationships with a number of them. The biggest downside is the location and the terrible weather. But if you like the small town feel, this could be the right place for you.

Ithaca is a small town with not much to do in the winter. However, this doesn't matter because you will not have a whole lot of time to go out anyway. The professors really care about their subjects and about teaching them, not just about publishing. While the environment is competitive, people are not malicious. It's a small enough school that what goes around comes around, and most people seem to understand this.

Graduation Year: 2013

I'm an LLM student. Pros: There are a lot of job openings once you finish this course and it's well structured. Besides, there's a lot of flexibility and you can select your own courses. Cons: It's too expensive and for the international students, taking classes with the regular JD students can be daunting since some Professors do not necessarily make special accommodations for international students in their classes

Graduation Year: 2013

My experience so far in Cornell has been very interesting. First of all the Faculty members are so nice and accessible. The school environment is a beauty and Ithaca is an affordable place to live. The Law school curriculum is very efficient and skills oriented and students are kept busy with academic activities all year long. The disadvantage of attending Cornell is tied to its location, although being an Ivy League school and one of the best in the world, I feel we do not have access to information as to job opportunities like our counterparts in New York City Columbian NYU.

Isolated, middle of nowhere, but beautiful. Overly intense. Worthwhile.
