5.0 of 5 stars
The location is gorge-ous, the library is beautiful and quiet, the professors are accessible, and the class sizes are small.
Ithaca is in the middle of nowhere, the winters can be brutally cold and seem to last for an eternity, and everything is on an enormous hill.
If you want to work at a big law firm in NYC, then Cornell is the place for you. Few schools place better in NYC BigLaw than CLS.

The support from the faculty members and staffs is just amazing, and being a small school is definitely a plus in the job market
Not very strong network in non-NY markets such as DC
If you think you are a person who likes to prove yourself through rigorous studying and stellar grades, Cornell is a great place for that with great faculty support and beautiful environment.
4.0 of 5 stars
Small class sizes, personal attention was available from professors, great job prospects.
Limited access to networking with law firms given the location.
Cornell is a great place to study if you want to go into private practice in New York. However, getting to other markets and career paths can be more challenging there--- their bread and butter is getting people jobs at NYC law firms.
Small SizeParticularly good if you want to work in NYC BigLaw
IsolatedName doesn't carry some weight on the West Coast
Great place, but is somewhat out there in Ithaca. Does take advantage of the resources of the larger university, to make for a pleasant few years.
