The Parker School of Foreign and Comparative Law was organized pursuant to the will of Judge Edwin B. Parker. Judge Parker was a leading international lawyer and senior partner in the law firm of Baker & Botts, and had served on international adjudicatory bodies following World War I.
He provided in his will for the establishment of a school devoted to the teaching and study of subjects relating to the international commerce and foreign relations of the United States. The mission of the Parker School of Foreign and Comparative Law, according to Columbia University statutes, is to promote the study and teaching of transnational and non-U.S. legal systems and international relations at Columbia Law, thereby facilitating engagement within the global legal academy and profession.
