The success of Cornell's Center for Law and Society is made possible through the generous support of the college's alumni. Below are three ways you can help current students have an extraordinary pre-law experience at Cornell.

On-Campus Opportunities

  • Serve as a featured speaker and talk about your legal experiences during a "Lunch with a Lawyer" program
  • Share your perspectives on the legal profession through panel conversations, e.g., What Can You Do With a Law Degree?, law student experience
  • Offer your insights on legal issues as part of a topic-oriented workshop, e.g., intellectual property issues, malpractice issues, immigration
  • Volunteer to judge a round or rounds for the annual Marcus D. Pohlmann Mock Trial Invitational Tournament each fall

Off-Campus Opportunities

  • Serve as a mentor to a current student through the Law Alumni Network
  • Meet with students over lunch or dinner when the CLS sponsors a law school tour or other special trip in your city
  • Suggest opportunities for students to job shadow, interact with attorneys at professional events, or participate in internships or fellowships
  • Make a gift to Cornell's Annual Fund to support the CLS operating budget; contact Kristi Columbus '96 in the Advancement Office
