Columbia Law School is pleased to present its new Global Law and Business Seminar.

The seminar is one-week professional education program designed for foreign-trained business lawyers, arbitration professionals, judges, prosecutors, defense counsel, and others. 

Participants in the non-credit program receive an official Statement of Participation from Columbia Law School.

Participants select two courses, totaling 16 hours of classroom instruction, from a menu of six distinct offerings in the fields of Corporate Law, International Arbitration, and Public Integrity Law.   The courses are taught by a mix of preeminent scholars and deeply experienced practitioners, drawn from Columbia Law School and other world-renowned institutions.  The program also offers optional lunchtime lectures on current legal topics, networking opportunities with other participants, and visits to sites of professional and cultural interest in New York City.

The program fee is $2,500, with on-campus housing available on a limited basis for an additional fee.  Individual applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis as of September 15.

(Note: Columbia Law School also hosts the US Business Law Academy, a separate three-week program for law students and practitioners offering 48 hours of academic instruction on US legal institutions, mediation, financial law, and corporate law.  This year, the USBLA will be presented online only from July 5-July 23, 2020.  Next year, the USBLA will return as an in-person program from July 5-23, 2021.)
