I have a prof that I was considering asking for an LoR, who happens to be a graduate from Cornell, with a PhD. I was wondering if this would carry any kind of weight when applying to Cornell, even though she was not a graduate from the law school itself. Or does alum status not matter, because she's not from the law school?

It's somewhat of an unknown but it certainly can't hurt. A good letter from a Cornell alum would probably be seen more positively than the same letter from a non-alum, but it's not like a mediocre letter from an alum will outweigh a good one from anyone else. Just ask whatever professor you think can speak the most highly about you.
