The European Legal Studies Center enjoys an outstanding reputation for training students to assume leadership roles in international and European law, public affairs, and the global economy. The center’s New York home offers students rich research and professional opportunities that have helped establish Columbia Law School among the world’s preeminent institutions in which to study European law.

The European Legal Studies Center has embraced an international focus as the cornerstone of its broad-ranging academic and research activities and its student community. The center’s strength is derived from a truly unique set of attributes: faculty members who are leaders in their fields, preeminent guest academics and practitioners, and a diverse student body drawn from Europe and all other parts of the world. Our New York City location is an ideal place from which to study European law, as it is home to the United Nations, international corporate and NGO headquarters as well as to European embassies, consulates, and cultural centers.
