Cornell's Program for Law and Society offers a comprehensive set of resources to guide and prepare students for successful admission to law school and careers in the legal profession.

Advisory board

The Program for Law and Society is supported by an advisory board of legal professionals from across the United States. The advisory board meets bi-annually during the October and May meetings of Cornell's board of trustees. Sheryl Stoll '70 and Judge Aleta Trauger '68 were instrumental in the development of Cornell's pre-law initiative.
