Find everything you need to navigate your path at Columbia Law School, including registration and financial aid information, roadmaps for each year, course listings, and more.  

Office of Student Services

Much of our portfolio is dedicated to the J.D. experience although we do coordinate events for both the J.D. and LL.M. populations (student organization support, university-mandated compliance matters, and graduation). For J.D. students, we are here to help you navigate your academic pursuits, and ensure you meet your required 83-points of credit.

In general please reach out if you have questions about orientation, academic advising, academic support, student organization support, journals, diversity and inclusion programming, health and wellness programs, housing, or graduation, or if you are simply experiencing a disruption that has an impact on your ability to study.
