If money were no object....

The news of Columbia University receiving a $400 million gift has me dreaming about what sort of law school reforms I would propose if money were no object.  My mind races with possible teaching, scholarship and service innovations that only a lot of money could help make happen (e.g., hiring law firm partners and associates to teach certain lawyering courses; creating massive legal databases to facilitate and foster empirical work; funding greater faculty involvement in major litigation in their fields of expertise).

Dear reader, how about dreaming along with me: what what sort of law school reforms would you propose if money were no object?

What a great daydream... I think the first thing I would do is develop a comprehensive curriculum in negotiation, in combination with a business school.

Fund students to dream up any commercial or not-for-profit venture, and then hire a staff to make that venture happen, with ownership partly held by the Law School (to fund future ventures).

LRAP and hefty staff pay increases.
