Columbia International Arbitration Association
The Columbia International Arbitration Association (CIAA) is Columbia Law School's only student association focusing exclusively on the topic of international arbitration.
CIAA 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. Since 2008, CIAA has hosted over 100 events to date, attracting worldwide attention and participation by some of the most prominent names in the field.
