@ Sophia and Michael,

Thanks for taking your time to answer questions from coming CLS LLM fellows.
Well, here my question:
Is the course: Comparative introduction to American Law graded on pass/fail basis? or do they actually consider it for calculation of the general GPA and, hence, honours?

Thanks.

Is the course: Comparative introduction to American Law graded on pass/fail basis? -- pass/fail

or do they actually consider it for calculation of the general GPA and, hence, honours? -- not considered for gpa calculation

it's possible to opt out of the class (not take it on a pass/fail basis) but still attend the lectures. that's what i did.

just an extra note, if you want to study with a particular prof, be sure they're not on sabbatcial next year. i might be able to help with info on this, if you ask for a particular prof.

Hey hi... this is a very pertinent suggestion, especially for the likes of me that also want to explore alternative trajectories like academia, policy making.

I am keen on working with either Avery Katz, Gordon or Pistor. How about them..? Have you worked / are working with any that you recommend. Armour?
(My interests are (as you might recollect from our previous conversations), corporate and securities regulation in an interdisciplinary perspective).

Thanks a lot for this though...

none of them are going to be on leave, as far as i know, next year. i have gordon right now for M&A. great academic, great lecturer, i think. if you have a picture in your head of a typical academic who's really good but a bit absent minded, plus with albert einstein hairdo, that's him!!!!! plus he talks like a character from ally mcbeal.

i don't know if armour will be visiting again next year. most likely not, since he is going to be in oxford for the MSc in LF. btw, since you're into L&E, some ed morrison does good work in L&E in relation to bankruptcy.

Hmm. I know about Ed Morrison and his work in bankruptcy. He was cited by Dick Posner recently.

Re Armour, I will miss him for sure though I could go for Goshen. And then there are our guys Gordon and Katz. That I guess is the best part about the faculty @ CLS. ( I gather they have some 200 on board!. To my knowledge, even Harvard has some 100).

Hey everyone, there's a facebook group for the Columbia LLM class of 2010-2011. I invite all of you who got admitted to join the group and briefly introduce yourselves on the wall. This will help us to get to know each other a little better before the start of the program and we can even share tips and infos on housing, classes, etc...... here's the link:
www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=114151954470&ref=ts#!/group.p…

Congratulations and see u there!
