Squash Court

The Cornell Law Library may be the only law library with a squash court, located on the ground floor of Myron Taylor Hall. Former law librarian Lewis Morse ('28), an avid squash player, believed a squash court to be as important to legal education as a moot court room. He considered the physical fitness of the students essential for their mental alertness and acuity. Due to this unique library asset, the Circulation Desk at one time provided students with both treatises and towels. Clifford R. Weidberg ('72) generously endowed the squash court in 1991. 

Students, faculty, and staff can reserve their play times through the online reservation system.

Bathrooms with showers are available on a first-come first-serve basis.  These may also be used for changing for on-campus interviews.
