This Way for the Cantwell Prize

Are you a 2L, 3L, or LLM? Have you written a scholarly research paper since May 2021, read it back to yourself and thought, “Yes, this is a whole vibe.”? Share the vibe and submit your paper to the Cornell Law Library Robert Cantwell Prize for Exemplary Student Research. Not only will you have everyone vibing, you’ll also have a chance to win one of two cash prizes AND to publish your paper in Scholarship@Law, spreading your vibe to a community of global researchers, scholars, and potential employers. Now, THAT’S a vibe.

Get Some Cornell Swag

All you need to do is answer our 2022 Law Library Student Survey for kids who can read legal things good and who wanna learn how to do other library stuff good too. For just 10 – 15 minutes out of one day, you too can be entered to a drawing for some Cornell swag. Help the Law Library plan for the future; get swag that you can keep for a lifetime.
