The Office of Student Services provides numerous academic services to law students. The Dean of Students, Yadira Ramos-Herbert, and the Director of Academic Counseling and Student Organizations, Joel Kosman, are available to assist you with course selection, explain degree requirements, and help you manage your academic work. LL.M. students may contact Dean Sylvia Polo; Jill M. Casal, Director of the Graduate Legal Studies; or Marissa Zalk, Assistant Director of Graduate Legal Studies, for assistance. Transfer students and those considering joint degrees are particularly encouraged to meet with a director at the start of your first year here in order to assess your required course load at Columbia. You are also welcome to make an appointment to discuss any academic concerns you may have.
