Please ship materials to:
LAW SCHOOL DAY
Attn: Mr. George Wood
321 East Palm Road
Ithaca, NY 14850
You will be responsible for shipping materials back to your schools. Please bring the necessary shipping forms with you; these forms must include the weight of shipment and your account number, or your materials will not be picked up. Literature left behind will be recycled.
The following delivery company provides regular service to Cornell and will pick up your materials at Barton Hall between 3:00 and 4:00 pm following the event.
- Federal Express, 800/463-3339
Law School Day is held in Barton Hall, a large facility used primarily for athletic activities. There is no air-conditioning, and on hot and/or humid days, the room can be uncomfortable. We encourage visiting representatives to dress appropriately for these conditions.
If your school ships materials in advance, you should find them at your table in Barton Hall. If materials are not there when you arrive, please see Administrative Assistant Kristine Goggan immediately.
Meals will be provided in the curtained dining area at the north side of Barton Hall as follows:
- Coffee, tea, and pastries—when representatives arrive
- Lunch—at noon
- Bottled water—throughout the day
