Columbia Law School has a long and distinctive history. The Law School was officially founded in 1858. Over the years, the Law School‚??s high standards of excellence have attracted exceptional students who have gone on to become respected lawyers, professors and judges. The distinguished faculty maintains a vigorous academic environment. The full-time faculty, which is responsible for the vast bulk of the teaching, consists of nationally known lawyers and scholars. Columbia professors publish widely in academic journals and their comments on the law appear regularly in the nation‚??s media. Many of the faculty participate in public interest activities and are active in legal education organizations. Columbia‚??s location in New York City enables it to draw on outstanding legal practitioners to teach advanced seminars in cutting-edge practice areas.


At the heart of the Columbia Law School education is the foundation curriculum. The teaching of the rules of law, which change rapidly in our constantly evolving society, is secondary to providing students with the intellectual tools and practical skills necessary to practice law in the 21st century. The predominant teaching method for foundation courses is the discussion method.


The elective curriculum is rich and varied. In the Clinical Education Program, for example, students gain real-life legal experience by working on actual cases. Students interview, investigate, develop a strategy, counsel and negotiate for their clients in a variety of legal forums including administrative agencies and the courts. The clinics also do an array of transactional and strategic work - - such as business planning, human rights initiatives and building web - based content for the state court system. The clinical offerings include such important topics as Sexuality and Gender Law, Human Rights, Mediation, Not-for-Profit and Small Business Enterprises, Lawyering in the Digital Age, and Child Advocacy, as well as Environmental Law.


To help students understand the business problems they may face as practicing attorneys, the Law School has created The Deals course. It provides a unique opportunity to study the underlying economic drive behind today‚??s complex business transactions and the laws of designing transactions. The class is broken down into groups and each group is given a large stack of documents from an actual transaction. Students are asked to identify and discuss the economic problems in the documents and the solutions the parties used. Then in the next class session, the expert practitioner who spearheaded the deal comes in to explain what really happened.


The library is a tremendous resource for students. The materials can be used to trace worldwide development of law from ancient China and the Roman Empire through medieval canon and secular law to modern civil and common law. A staff of specially-trained librarians assists researchers and instructs students on the use of research tools. All of the Law Library‚??s holdings are electronically cataloged and searchable by dedicated terminals in the library - as well as through the Law School‚??s network, or through the Internet. Digital subscriptions include LexisNexis, Westlaw, BNA, Bloomberg, and a wide range of foreign legal databases. There is also an extraordinary rare book collection. Columbia‚??s location in New York City provides unparalleled opportunities for research and the Law School maintains connections with many institutions. Additionally, student computer access and support is maintained by the Law School‚??s Information Technology Department, one of the largest and most sophisticated law school IT units in the country.


Columbia‚??s tradition of academic excellence continues to strengthen. One of the most highly selective law schools in the country, the Law School last year received 7,292 applications for 1,157 places, accepting only 15.8 percent. For the 2007 entering Class, the median LSAT was 172 and the median UGPA was 3.70. Columbia‚??s student body is distinguished further by a remarkable range of backgrounds and life experiences. Current law students hail from over 200 undergraduates‚?? colleges, 48 states, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and 34 foreign countries. Columbia is one of the most culturally diverse law schools with the highest percentage of international students, with one of the highest percentages of students of color, with approximately 45 percent of its student body women and two-thirds coming to Columbia with prior professional and advanced academic experience across a broad range of disciplines. Columbia remains committed to the principle that admissions decisions are made without regard to an applicant‚??s financial need. An extensive financial aid program helps fulfill that commitment.


The Office of Career Services provides a full range of counseling services to both students and graduates. The office assists with interviews, maintains a comprehensive database on major employers and provides extensive group and individual counseling. It also brings to campus employers in whom students have expressed an interest. More than 800 employers (90% of which are law firms) visit the school yearly. 99% of the Class of 2006 were employed by graduation. The median overall starting salary for the Class of 2006, for all types of employment, was $145,000.


Columbia is dedicated to the proposition that law is a profession that serves the public interest. The Center for Public Interest Law (CPIL) cultivates student interest in public service law by presenting lectures and panels on a variety of public interest issues, providing career counseling for all interested law students, and promoting the placement of students in public service jobs across the private, government and non-for-profit sectors. CPIL facilitates Columbia Law School‚??s mandatory pro bono service program, which requires all students to complete forty hours of law-related public interest work before they graduate. Additionally, CPIL counsels students on obtaining post-graduate fellowships, and offers guaranteed summer funding stipends to all JD students who pursue public interest internships. CPIL also manages Columbia‚??s flagship program which sends students all over the world to practice international human rights law, on an array of topics including international criminal law, transitional justice and issues in post-genocide regions, global labor rights, immigration and refugee rights, and a variety of other human rights topics.


There are 14 student-edited journals published, which include the Columbia Law Review, Human Rights Law Review, American Review of International Arbitration, Journal of Asian Law, Journal of Transnational Law, Journal of Law and Social Problems, Journal of Gender and Law, the Business Law Review, The National Black Law Journal and Journal of Environmental Law, Journal of European Law, Journal of East European Law, Journal of Law &the Arts, Science and Technology Law Review. And the Dean of Students Office is responsible for the numerous extracurricular activities at the Law School. Organizations devoted to social, political and intellectual interests, include, among many others, the Black Law Students Association, Christian Legal Fellowship, The Federalist Society, Environmental Law Society, the Older and Wiser Law Students Association (OWLS), Asian Pacific American Law Students Association, Latin American Law Students Association, Native American Law Students Association, South Asian law Students Association, Arab Law Students Association, Jewish Law Students Association, Entertainment Sports Law Society, Public Interest Law Foundation, and Domestic Violence Project.


The technological services at Columbia Law School are second to none and are in a constant state of change, to meet the ever-changing requirements of our community. The systems at Columbia Law School allow students to learn and are designed to be stable and easy to use. We understand the learning environment is no longer confined to a classroom, a building, or to a few hours a day. Students connect from all over the world, through various devices, and at all hours of the day. We acknowledge this need by offering a vast array of web-based services, that can be accessed anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day. This includes online registration tools, course web pages, network storage, and much more.


The services are supported by a robust and reliable network of wired and wireless classrooms. Almost every classroom is wireless and/or wired, and most of the public spaces are wireless. We understand students may connect to resources with their laptops, or decide to use on-campus computers. There are lab computers and email kiosks dedicated for student use. The computers are conveniently located throughout the Law School campus and many of them are accessible 24 hours a day. The computers are networked, with access to file storage space and networked printers. The file storage space is backed up every night and the printers are high-speed laser printers.
