Graduate Affairs For LLM and Exchange Students

Registering for Classes

Students register during the summer for both fall and spring semesters. To register for classes, all Law School students use a system called COURSES, accessed at Read carefully through our LLM Registration Guide for some advice on course selection and a detailed description of COURSES and how it works. Prior to registration in June, we encourage entering LLM and Exchange students to contact the Office of Graduate Affairs for individualized advice on selecting classes.  For information on registering for a class at another Division of the University or for a class at Columbia Law School via the Columbia Law School/NYU School of Law Exchange, read an explanation of cross-registration opportunities.
