Master of Laws at Cornell Tech

Learn in Teams at the Intersection of Technology, Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Cornell Tech’s Master of Laws in Law, Technology, and Entrepreneurship is the first degree of its kind in the world. It’s a year-long immersion in innovation, creativity and new business development that will have you learning side-by-side with designers, engineers and business students. Working together in teams, you’ll create new products for existing businesses in the Product Studio and develop your own new business in the Startup Studio. You’ll also have ample opportunity to network with the vibrant community of investors, business leaders and entrepreneurial faculty members that only a city like New York and a university like Cornell can provide.

Who Should Apply?

The Master of Laws in Law, Technology and Entrepreneurship is for practicing attorneys or recent law graduates who want to further hone their legal and leadership skills in the heart of New York City’s ever-evolving technology and entrepreneurship ecosystem.

For foreign-trained students, the Cornell Tech LLM will not by itself qualify graduates to sit for the New York State bar exami­nation; however, foreign-trained students can apply to take additional coursework at Cornell Law School to satisfy the requirements to sit for the bar.
