For more than 60 years, Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) has been educating students to make a difference in the world. Through rigorous social science research and hands-on practice, SIPA’s students strive to improve social services, advocate for human rights, strengthen markets, protect the environment, and secure peace, in their home communities and around the world.
The SIPA curriculum combines training in analytical methods and practical management skills, and can provide a valuable complement to traditional law school coursework. Our international law faculty suggest that you may be interested in the courses listed below. Note that these courses may not be offered each academic year.
