Student organizations are an integral and significant piece of the student experience at Columbia Law School. With more than 85 student organizations, ranging from professional interest organizations to social organizations, almost all of our students are active in at least one group.
Student Organization Handbook
The Office of Student Services is a resource for all student organizations. Joel Kosman, our Director of Academic Counseling and Student Organizations is available to assist you with the management of your organization's finances, space, event planning, and Law School and university policies about student organization events. We encourage you to make an appointment to discuss any concerns you may have. For more questions and inquiries, please email Student Organizations.
Columbia Law School is the home of 14 law journals, including many of the leading scholarly publications in their fields. Working on a law journal affords students the opportunity to hone their writing and editing skills, participate actively in the scholarship and commentary central to the American legal culture and tradition, and join a micro-community within the Law School.
