Transfer students are eligible to apply to participate in all student law journals at Columbia Law School. Each journal has its own application criteria. With the exception of Columbia Law Review, transfer students are informed of application procedures for journal participation upon admission to Columbia Law School’s transfer program.
2018 Columbia Law Review Transfer Application Process
Transfer students with an interest in the Columbia Law Review may apply in one of two ways: through an annual week-long transfer application period in July (details below), or the Publishable Notes Program during the academic year.
Columbia Law Review Transfer Application
The transfer application for the Columbia Law Review consists of two primary elements—the writing component and the personal statement—about which more information may be found on the Columbia Law Review page.
The application period will be held for approximately one week in July 2018, with offers made to accepted transfer students no later than one week following the application period. Successful applicants who accept an offer must attend the journal's Staffer Orientation. Transfer applicants should participate in the journal application process even prior to the submission of an application for Columbia Law School admission and prior to receiving any admissions decision.
Check the Columbia Law Review page for information about how to apply. Any questions about the transfer application process should be directed to Megan Ji at email@example.com.
