Columbia Law School is a professional graduate school of Columbia University. Columbia is regarded as one of the most prestigious law schools in the world and has always been ranked in the top five by U.S. News and World Report.

Founded in 1858, Columbia has produced a large number of distinguished alumni including two Presidents of the United States (Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and Theodore Roosevelt); nine Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States; numerous U.S. Cabinet members and Presidential advisers; U.S. Senators, Representatives, and Governors; and more members of the Forbes 400 than any other law school.

Columbia is especially well known for its strength in corporate law and its placement power in the nation's elite law firms.

According to Columbia Law School's 2013 ABA-required disclosures, 95% of the Class of 2013 obtained full-time, long-term, JD-required employment nine months after graduation.
