For more than fifty years Columbia Law School has offered this Summer Program in American Law in collaboration with the law faculties of Leiden and Amsterdam Universities. The Program is held every summer in July and alternates each year between Leiden and Amsterdam.
The Columbia Summer Program teaching staff are known for the excellence and high quality that they bring to Amsterdam and Leiden every year.
Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) we were unable to host the Program for the past two years. It is with pleasure that we announce that the 2022 Columbia Summer Program will take place in July.
I lived the Program as a real breath of fresh air in my Law studies: In addition to the undeniable intellecutal enrichment of the courses, it was an incredible chance to meet people from the entire world, discover their way of thinking, and explore a wonderful city guided by its inhabitants. The days spent with these persons will remain etched in my memory and I am sure that some will be my friends for life!
