The Columbia Law School Student Senate seeks to encourage the existence of a diverse offering of activities and associations that augment a student’s law school experience. Student organizations provide important opportunities to students during their law school careers to participate in interesting events and projects and exercise positions of leadership that may both enrich and enlighten their legal education. Applications must be submitted no later than the 3rd Wednesday in October (Fall) or February (Spring), unless otherwise communicated by the current Parliamentarian. The application packet is available here.
Recognition allows student leaders to be contacted by the senate and Student Services with important information, and helps to ensure that Student Activity Fee funds are used to benefit all Law School students and that groups are organized to enrich the social and general welfare of the students.
Several benefits attend recognition, including:
- A law.columbia.edu email account as well as a group mailing list
- Access to Student Activity Fee funding
- Access to the room reservation system
- A printing quota
