About the Richman Center

The goal of the Richman Center is to foster collaboration among Columbia University’s distinguished business and legal scholars in order to generate curricular innovations and advanced research that has the potential to inform public policy as well as the theory and practice of business and law. In pursuing this goal, the Center promotes broad-ranging dialogue with alumni and other leaders from industry, government, media, and academia — all of whom can provide unique insights and expertise.

The Richman Center provides a platform for the exchange of ideas on the most timely, relevant matters, while inspiring future generations of students to pursue careers at the nexus of business, law, and public policy. Findings originating at the Center will be disseminated through conferences and symposia, Columbia-authored case studies, decision briefs, and policy white papers.

Mission

Established in 2011 with a visionary gift from Richard Paul Richman, JD ’72, MBA ’73, the Richard Paul Richman Center for Business, Law, and Public Policy at Columbia University is a joint venture of Columbia’s Business and Law Schools. The Richman Center promotes evidence-based public policy and fosters dialogue and debate on emerging policy questions where business and markets intersect with the law.

The Center supports empirical, theoretical, and institutional research targeting central issues at the nexus of law and markets, both domestically and internationally, and helps translate this academic research into practical strategies for executing new regulatory reforms and business opportunities. It also fosters curricular innovations and student activities that tap synergies between the Business and Law Schools.
