SHOW STUDENT DETAILS

“Columbia's faculty members value the diverse backgrounds of their students, as well as their formidable academic skills. Like the best students, outstanding faculty want to be challenged by perspectives and experiences other than their own. Columbia professors use their skill to stimulate students to think for themselves and to help students make their own original contributions to legal scholarship. There are many opportunities for students and faculty members to collaborate on research and to engage frequently in an informal sharing of ideas. The intellectual environment of the Law School is indeed a rich and creative one.” (Columbia Law Website)

Columbia Law School attracts a diverse student body with students hailing “from 49 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and 32 countries” and “representing nearly 200 colleges and universities.” (Columbia Law Website) When it comes to student life, there is certainly no scarcity of activities at Columbia Law School. There are over 70 student organizations and approximately 14 journals, including publications such as the Columbia Law Review, Human Rights Law Review, American Review of International Arbitration, the Business Law Review, and the Journal of Law & the Arts, Science and Technology Law Review. New York City also provides a stellar array of entertainment. Students can enjoy dining experiences ranging from small family-owned diners to five-star restaurants. Those interested in music or theatre can choose from events such as performances in Central Park, a Broadway play or a production of the New York City Opera. New York City is also home to a seemingly endless number of museums, jazz clubs, bars, and lounges. In addition, students looking to work off that law school stress have access to Columbia’s Dodge Physical Fitness Center, as well as several fitness facilities scattered throughout the city.

With respect to student housing, all Columbia Law School housing consists of apartments owned and managed by the University, most of which are located close to the law school.
