Appropriate Use Policy

The Columbia Law School Blogs site was created for official use by Columbia Law School faculty, student leaders, and senior administrators to facilitate communication between Columbia Law School and its public. As members of a vibrant community that values judgment and demands integrity, you are encouraged to engage in the full range of spirited communication that is at the heart of academic freedom, while being mindful of your ethical and professional obligation to engage in conversations responsibly.

You should remember that the content of emails, text messages, blog entries, and web postings can be disseminated instantly, can never be entirely erased, and may create lasting consequences for the subjects as well as the speakers. Employers routinely search the Internet for references to or postings by potential employees. Likewise, your reputation among your colleagues and classmates will stay with you for the rest of your career.

Please take time to think about the potential consequences of your online communications and the online documentation of your behavior. Columbia Law School Blogs may be reviewed periodically by the webadmin moderators. You may also report offensive comments to, which may, under advice by the Web Task Force remove the blog from the Columbia Law School website. Repeated offensive blog posts may result in further action.
