The Center on Global Governance engages in ongoing review of the Columbia Law School's extensive curriculum and identifies collaborators for teaching and research from communities outside the law school, including the worlds of practice and public policy.

Since its founding in 2003, the center has run a public speaker series featuring distinguished members of the international policy community as well as the academy. The Center has also hosted dozens of conferences addressing issues including transitional justice in the wake of mass atrocity, international crime and terrorism, the regulation of the multinational enterprise and transnational capital, immigration, and human rights.

Overall the center’s initiatives flow naturally from Columbia Law School’s exceptionally rich curriculum relating to global law issues. Its activities, in turn, affect that curriculum. As part of its regular curriculum, the Columbia Law School offers what is perhaps the largest number of courses and seminars of any U.S. law school, focusing on the challenges emerging from transnational movement of goods, capital, people, or ideas.
