Christopher G. Bradley

Professor of Law


Professor Christopher Bradley’s research and teaching interests include bankruptcy law, commercial law, consumer law, privacy law, and business law (especially the law of unincorporated entities). Much of his research has focused on the legal implications of technological innovation. Professor Bradley joins the University of Florida from the University of Kentucky, where he recently received the law school’s Duncan Award for teaching and was twice chosen by graduating classes to help with their hooding ceremony at commencement.

Professor Bradley practiced bankruptcy and commercial law in Houston and Austin, Texas, prior to entering academia. He served as clerk for Judge Patrick Higginbotham of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit and for Judge Tony Davis of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Texas.

While he was in practice, Professor Bradley was active in service through bar associations and pro bono representation, and as a professor, he has remained committed to service to the community. He has also been active in the Association of American Law schools, recently serving on the executive committees of the Section on Agency, Partnership, LLCs and Unincorporated Associations and of the Section on Commercial and Related Consumer Law. He helped to lead fundraising for United Way within the University of Kentucky community, and he has advocated on a pro bono basis concerning bankruptcy law.
