I recently had the good fortune to be offered a full tuition scholarship to CLS. However being a non-citizen there's a slight possibility that I might find myself outside the US in the future (English-speaking, like England / Canada / Hong Kong). I was wondering if a law degree from Columbia carries enough weight that I could get a decent-paying job in those circumstances? (Management, consulting, international office of a law firm, etc.?)

If you want to do consulting or whatever, get an MBA not a JD.

I write to emphasize the above. I note that OP, in listing desirable jobs, listed management, then consulting, and only listed working as a lawyer third. I don't want to overread, but that is not an encouraging sign in favor of attending law school.
OP, if your preferred post-graduation outcome is a management or consulting role, please seriously reconsider going to law school. An MBA will help you far, far more than a J.D. (and will also save you a year in school!) in securing a management/consulting/other business role.
