Columbia vs NYU: Arbitration/Litigation


swm2010

I'm interested in arbitration/litigation (work experience in this field) and got admitted to CLS and NYU (for the LL.M. in International Business Regulation, Litigation and Arbitration). Where shall I go? Any input (esp. regarding my field of interest) would be appreciated. I have to decide until this Monday. Thanks.

i don't know anything about nyu's strengths in arbitration/litigation, but i would say that this is not a particular strength of columbia next year, with berman going on sabbatical and there being no other regular lecturer on this topic.

i'm from columbia, so if i were to specialize in arbitration/litigation this year, i would have picked the ffg classes:

- transnational arbitration & litigation -- berman
- international commercial arbitration -- lee
- investment law & arbitration - bekker
- deals litigation - two profs
- and maybe throw in a class on corporation - 4 profs
- mass torts - ohlemeyer
- corporate law litigation - coffee
- Construction Industry Law: Transactional Practice, Dispute Avoidance and Resolution - quintas & rubin
- Big Case: Tactics and Strategy

the problem is, berman is on leave next year, lee is a visiting prof. so two core classes might not have a regular prof next year. there will probably still be a prof, but you're not sure who it will be. but of course, columbia has substantial offerings on litigation and arbitration.

NYU of course, it is a specialized llm in that area...if you r sure u want to do arbitration, then, go for nyu law.
