Cornell Law School Officially Opens New Wing

Cornell Law School Officially opened its new wing, with cutting a ceremonial ribbon on April 23, 2014. “Now we also love our existing building, with its nooks and crannies, alleyways and byways, Gothic feel,” Dean Stewart Schwab told his ribbon-cutting audience, according to the Cornell Chronicle. Located in Ithaca, New York, Cornell Law School is a graduate school of Cornell University and one of the five Ivy League law schools. The National Law Journal reported that Cornell Law graduates had the 2nd highest percent placement at the top 250 law firms.

“Indeed, some have told me that original Myron Taylor Hall is a wonderful metaphor for legal study. You can’t possibly know your way around after a semester or year. But after three years you know and appreciate the connections [and] which paths are dead ends.”

According to the Cornell Chronicle, The project cost $23.8 million, and broke ground in June 2012. It has been reported that it is the first of three phases in the school’s $60 million expansion and renovation plan. Public access is through a newly configured entrance in Myron Taylor Hall. “Clarity” and “openness” are afforded by west-facing, floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open up to the Purcell Courtyard.

Dean Schwab reported that the classrooms are “good to teach and learn in, the gathering space is inviting, and the look and feel is great. I think the space will wear well over time and remain a source of pride for us.” Dean Stewart Schwab has also said that, “A great building can inspire, can create connections, can bolster what we do.” The courtyard will open in time for Law School Convocation, May 11. Cornell Law School and its Master of Laws, or LL.M., program ranked 1st in the 2011, 2010, 2008 and 2006 AUAP rankings.
