Board of Visitors
Formed in 1933, the Board of Visitors is Columbia Law School's advisory board. Board members are a distinguished group of individuals who represent the diversity of experiences, interests, and geographic regions that lie at the heart of the Law School.
Through the board’s impassioned commitment, its principal responsibilities are to:
- counsel the Dean and faculty about the School’s educational opportunities and directions;
- access and build connections with individuals worldwide, and leverage the Law School’s strengths and assets within the global community;
- advise and assist the Dean in pursuing advancement goals;
- help deepen the lifelong engagement between every generation of alumni and the Law School community.
The full board meets twice per year.
