The Parker School Recognition Requirements
The Parker School supports and encourages study of foreign and comparative law at Columbia Law School. It awards certificates at graduation to students who have included international and comparative law in their J.D. or LL.M. studies. Currently, the Parker School is headed by Professor Benjamin Liebman.
The Faculty of Law has authorized the award of a recognition of achievement in international and comparative law to students who meet the requirements set forth below. The award was first made available to graduating students in May 1975. The award will be made at the time of graduation in conjunction with the award of the J.D. or LL.M degree.
To be entitled to the award, a student must:
1. Have earned a J.D. or LL.M degree.
2. Complete the application by the stated deadline.
3. Earn ten credits of academic work in the international or comparative law areas.
The application deadline for Spring 2019 graduates has now passed. The application will re-open for Spring 2020 graduates in March of 2020.
