Who is this program for?
For current university students (Bachelors and Masters) in law with an interest in American law. For working professionals and entrepreneurs with a desire to continue their education/update their skills in this field.
For more than fifty years Columbia Law School has offered this Summer Program in American Law in collaboration with the law faculties of Amsterdam and Leiden Universities. The Program is held every summer, for the whole month of July, and alternates each year between Amsterdam and Leiden. This year the Program will be held in Amsterdam.
Recent students - and students from many years past - have given overwhelmingly enthusiastic evaluations of the Program. Former students - who are now distinguished judges, political leaders, senior attorneys, business executives, and law professors - participate in great numbers in formal Program reunions and in smaller informal reunions in many countries.
The program is entirely taught by Columbia professors, and is designed to provide a general introduction to the American legal system for lawyers and other (legal) professionals, or (graduate) students interested in the program.
Besides the excellent educational aspects, the Columbia Summer Program is also known for its exceptional fine atmosphere amongst participants and professors from Columbia University. The bonds summer students form with professors are strengthened outside the classroom, through daily lunches at the university and social activities. Hans Smit established the program with this collegial atmosphere in mind.
As a Summer Institute student you receive a participation certificate with an official seal from the Universiteit van Amsterdam.
Students who wish to earn credits receive an official transcript stating the courses taken, credits earned and grades obtained. The programme is the equivalent of a 6 European Credits (or 3 American credits) module. Students are responsible for ensuring that their home university will accept the credits and final credit conversions need to be made by the home university. If you have questions about credit transfer, or need more information on the program for your home university's administration, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
