In 2003. Columbia students placed first among 500 teams competing in the Philip C. Jessup Moot Court national competition, defeating students from Harvard Law School in the finals. While a cause for celebration, the victory was no surprise. For decades, Columbia has consistently attracted students interested in international law, and more than 50 percent of students graduate having taken at least one upper-level course in the subject. While here, students can become editors on any of six journals directly related to international law: the American Review of International Arbitration, the Columbia Human Rights Law Review, the Columbia Journal of European Law, the Columbia Journal of Transnational Law, the Journal of East European Law, and the Columbia Journal of Asian Law.
