This summer, Leiden Law School will host the Columbia Summer Program. For more than fifty years Columbia Law School has offered this Summer Program in American Law, in cooperation with the law faculties of Leiden and Amsterdam Universities. The Program is held in alternate summers, for the full month of July, in Leiden and Amsterdam. This year 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.
