Columbia Law School

Columbia Law School, founded in 1858, stands at the forefront of legal education and of the law in a global society. Columbia Law School offers J.D., LL.M., and J.S.D. programs, as well as an array of international double degree, certificate, and study abroad programs. Also offered are short-term, training for foreign-trained lawyers and students, such as the U.S. Business Law Academy.

Columbia Law School combines traditional strengths in corporate law and financial regulation, international and comparative law, property, contracts, constitutional law, and administrative law with pioneering work in intellectual property, digital technology, tax law and policy, national security, human rights, sexuality and gender, and environmental law.

The curriculum spans public and private law and uniquely prepares students to navigate lawyering and governance across multiple orders. Many courses are interdisciplinary or combine forces with preeminent schools of Columbia University, including Columbia University's School of Business and School of International and Public Affairs.

Columbia Law School's location in New York City—a world financial and commercial center—is also an essential source of our intellectual firepower, global vision, and pragmatic approach. On the cutting edge of scholarship, faculty members are also engaged on the front lines as consultants to law firms, corporations, governments, and international regulatory bodies.
