Members of the Cornell community may schedule an appointment with a research librarian for more in-depth remote consultations. Email with your status (e.g., law student or graduate student), the subject of the consultation, and some times when you would be available to meet virtually. Librarians are unable to provide any type of legal advice to library users. Providing such advice violates the rules and laws governing the practice of law.
