The Columbia International Arbitration Association (CIAA) is Columbia Law School's only student association focusing exclusively on the topic of international arbitration. Our organization was formed in the fall of 2008 as a joint effort of the students in the J.D. and LL.M. programs with the generous support and guidance of Professor George A. Bermann. The organization tapped into an abundant reservoir of enthusiasm for the subject of international arbitration among students, academics and practitioners and became an instant success hosting more than 100 events to date, attracting worldwide attention and participation by some of the most prominent names in the field.
