A question for current Columbia students?


AJ

Hi guys,

Can somebody please give me the link on Columbia's website that takes me to a description of L9062 -International Trade Contracts. The reason why I need this is as follows : Columbia's website provides that a student cannot take both L6609 TRANSNATIONAL LITIGATION
AND ARBITRATION and L9062 INTERNATIONAL TRADE CONTRACTS because of overlapping material. However, I have been unable to find a course with the code L9062. The closest I have got is L9061.

Anybody got a response?

Cheers,
AJ

Hey there,

I believe the website you referred to is the courseweb result for Bermann's Transn. Lit./Arb. class in spring 2004. In spring 2004 there indeed existed such a requirement because in that term a course L9062 (International Trade Law) was offered too. However, it seems that this latter class (International Trade Law) is no longer offered. At least in the current courseweb as of April 2006 you will not find such a course. Instead there exists since this spring term (2006) a new similar class: If you are interested in international trade contracts you might consider to attend class L9303 (the "Seminar Strategic International Commercial Transactions" with Mark Vecchio) which you find in the curriculum guide under the letter "S" because it is a seminar, isn't that logical? ;-). There is no overlapping between Bermann's class in transnational litigation and arbitration and Mark Vecchio's seminar. To be sure you can of course write an email to Prof. Bermann or Mark Vecchio but I do not believe it is necessary. Bermann's class is very popular. As mentioned earlier, Vecchio's class is run this spring term for the first time and there is no course evaluation available at that moment.

All the best!

Hi TFH,

Thanks for your reply. The link I used was http://www.law.columbia.edu/llm_jsd/grad_studies/courses/Civil_Procedure . I understand what you are saying and surely there is no need to contact Prof. Bermann. However, if I am correct there is still a subject offered at Columbia titled " L6266 International Trade Law" taught by Bhagwati, Mavroidis. I can only presume that L6266 is different from L9602 and that L6266 is still offered at Columbia. Also, I have another question for you : Can you give me some feedback on L9061 INTERNATIONAL COMMERCIAL
ARBITRATION taught by Prof. Smit and L6221 COMMERCIAL TRANSACTIONS taught by Prof. Katz. Finally, do you see some overlapping in Prof. Bermann's class and Prof. Smit's class , I mean is it advisable to take both the classes?

Thanks a lot for all your help.

Cheers,
AJ.

Hi AJ,

I highly recommend to wait with the final course choice until July or so. The administration will send you all the necessary passwords to accede to our lawnet. In the lawnet you will find all the course evaluation reports from previous years.

Please note that during the first two weeks of the classes there will be a so-called "add/drop period". In this period you can add and drop courses at your leisure, depending on what your opinion about each individual professor is.

If you do not find a class in International Trade Law at the Columbia Law School then you will find such a class at the SIPA, the School of International and Public Affairs, which is next door to the law school and has a world-class reputation. The SIPA classes are in many cases open to Law School Students, and quite a few law school students attend SIPA classes in addition to their CLS classes.

Btw, do not forget to take a Negotiation Workshop - it's so much fun and will help you to tremendously increase your negotiation skills.

Best!
