LLM 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 is 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 or work inside businesses or organizations in PiTech Studio or BigCo Studio. You will dive into studying law and building the transactional skills that emerging technology companies need in practitioner-led courses designed specifically for this program. You will 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.

The Cornell Tech LLM Three-Semester Option for International Students

The two-semester Cornell Tech LLM will not by itself qualify most foreign-trained lawyers to sit for the New York State bar examination.* Students who require additional training to qualify to sit for the New York State bar examination may apply for the Cornell Tech LLM three-semester option.** After completing Fall and Spring terms at Cornell Tech three-semester students will spend an additional Fall term at Cornell Law School in Ithaca, New York. There students will have access to classes which meet the subject matter requirements set forth by the New York Board of Law Examiners.

*Requirements vary according to educational background, and bar examination requirements change often. We cannot counsel individual applicants regarding these requirements prior to their admittance into the program. We recommend students who earned their law degree outside of the US review the New York State rules at

**The three-semester option requires an additional tuition payment. For the 2021-22 academic year 2-term tuition is $70,188 and 3-term tuition is $105,300.
