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.
