Section Description Provided by Instructor
Graded CR (credit) or F (failure).
J.D. candidates only.
Major Writing Credit must be registered separately with Registration Services not later than the end of the Change of Program period of their fifth semester (see Rule 1.4).
A paper may qualify for a Major Writing Credit only if it has been supervised by a Columbia Law School faculty member. This may be any member of the regular or clinical or adjunct or visiting faculty. It may be used as a seminar paper or in completion of a research project. It may also be the note submitted to a journal.
In order to register for Major Writing Credit, students must propose and secure the agreement of a faculty member to act as Supervisor. Students must submit a complete draft of the paper for comments and suggestions. Major Writing Credit will be awarded by the Faculty Supervisor for the satisfactory completion of a final draft written in response to the comments and suggestions. All written work submitted in satisfaction of the Major Writing Requirement must be completed by the first day of the month preceding the month by which the student anticipates graduating. For May graduates the final draft of the Major Writing paper must be submitted by April 1. See Rule 1.4 for more information.
