Join our long tradition of Columbia Summer Program!
For more than 50 years, students and professionals from all over the world have joined us in the picturesque Dutch cities of Leiden or Amsterdam for the Columbia Summer Program to learn about all aspects of American Law taught by distinguished Professors from Columbia University, New York.
The Program is held in alternate summers, for the full month of July, in Leiden and Amsterdam. In 2018 the Program will be held in Leiden.
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.
At the end of the Program, students are awarded a Certificate of Participation. If they wish to take a final examination, they may obtain 5 EC (European credits, ECTS) toward degrees at their home universities. For Dutch lawyers, participating in the program, it is possible to obtain NOvA credits accredited by the Dutch Bar Association.
