Visiting Columbia Law School

Applicants and prospective students are welcome to visit Columbia Law School and the Executive LL.M. Office during regular office hours, generally, Monday through Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.   Please make an appointment by contacting the Executive LL.M. Office at ExecLLM@law.columbia.edu.

We will be happy to meet you and answer your questions. Unfortunately, because of the large number of applicants from all over the world, it is not logistically possible for interviews to be included as part of the selection process.  As a substitute, we depend upon the insights provided by your letters of recommendation and Personal Statement.  In addition to providing us with a more personal sense of your individual qualities, the Personal Statement affords you an opportunity to present any special information or factors that may prove useful to our deliberations.  Although we do not offer daily guided tours, you may enjoy a self-guided tour of the Law School.  We can also provide you with a pass to enter the Law School library.

Tour Columbia University

Visitors are welcome to tour the Morningside campus on their own or join a guided tour at 1:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. The 1:00 p.m. guided tour is not specific to any academic program and does not include admissions information. Maps and other materials for self-guided tours are available in the Visitors Center, located in room 213 of Low Memorial Library. Low Library is the domed, national landmark building in the center of the University’s Campus Walk (which runs along West 116th Street, between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue). The Visitors Center is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., except for major holidays. No registration is required to pick up a self-guided walking tour brochure; however, a current Columbia I.D. is required to enter all buildings except Low Library. You are welcome to explore any of the outdoor green space on campus. A virtual tour and podcast are available online.  For more information, see Visiting Columbia.

An Interactive Map of Columbia University's Morningside Campus is also available.
