Cornell University Law School
Cornell Law School is housed in Myron Taylor Hall, one of the signature complexes in Cornell University's beautiful central campus. The university itself, the largest of the Ivy League universities, is perched on a sprawling campus that overlooks Ithaca, New York, and Cayuga Lake, one of central New York's Finger Lakes. While Cornell University is large (roughly 19,000 students), the law school is small (roughly 660 students: 70–80 LLM students and 590 JD students). This allows for a collegial and supportive law school experience combined with the resources and opportunities afforded by the larger university community. The Cornell Law School mission has been international in scope and purpose since its founding in 1887. Graduates are trained to succeed in a rapidly evolving transnational environment. The faculty's teaching and research is internationally respected and the student body is drawn from around the globe.
