The Columbia Law School Student Senate seeks to encourage a diverse offering of activities and associations that augment a student’s law school experience. Student organizations provide opportunities for students to participate in interesting events and projects and exercise positions of leadership that may both enrich and enlighten their legal education. Applications must be submitted no later than the April 1st for the current school year unless otherwise communicated by the current Parliamentarian.
Recognition allows student leaders to be contacted by the Senate and Student Services with important information, ensures that Student Activity Fee funds are used to benefit all Law School students, and ensures that groups are organized to enrich the social and general welfare of the student body.
Several benefits attend recognition, including:
- A law.columbia.edu email account and a group mailing list
- Access to Student Activity Fee funding
- Access to the room reservation system
- A printing quota
