We report measurements of magneto-rotational effects in the coherent forward scattering of light on an ensemble of cold 7Li atoms. The effect of the cold atomic cloud on the polarization state of a probe beam is studied for magnetic fields in the Faraday and Voigt configurations. Magneto-optical effects with cold atoms have the potential to be highly sensitive tools for the spatially and temporally resolved detection of either small atomic ensembles or small magnetic fields
