Paul Richman Center for Business, Law, and Public Policy


Housed in the Business School, the Center provides a platform for duologue on the subjects of law and business. It aims to foster a collaboration among Columbia University's distinguished scholars.

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.
