Global Prelaw Program in Paris cancelled

In response to the challenges posed by the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), Cornell University and the School of Continuing Education (SCE) have been monitoring the Travel Warnings and Advisories posted by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Unfortunately, the CDC has raised Europe’s status to "Warning Level 3: Avoid Nonessential Travel." In keeping with the directives outlined by the Provost, all Cornell-run programs in Europe are now suspended until further notice and the Cornell Global Prelaw Program in Paris in 2020 is cancelled.

Cornell SCE is working to help students continue their studies and meet their academic goals. See summer study options for students impacted by the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Enjoy an Ivy League law school experience & explore life in France

Taught in English by members of the Cornell Law School faculty, this intensive program introduces advanced prelaw students to legal study from an international perspective and provides extended mentorship for law school success.

In a four-credit course, you'll explore topics including comparative law, human rights, global constitutional law, and international intellectual property.

In addition, you’ll participate in a small-group seminar covering topics such as note-taking, briefing cases, and law exams. This seminar will also prepare you for the law school application process, including a session with Cornell Law’s admissions office.

Integrated into the coursework will be an exploration of Parisian life and culture.
