Prof. Christopher G. Bradley

PROF. CHRISTOPHER G. BRADLEY is an Assistant Professor of Law at the University of Kentucky College of Law. Professor Bradley teaches in the areas of corporate finance, business associations, bankruptcy, and commercial law/UCC.  Prior to entering academia, Professor Bradley clerked for Judge Higginbotham of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit and Judge Davis of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Texas, both in Austin, Texas. He also practiced with several law firms, including Waller Lansden Dortch & Davis.  He is a graduate of Princeton University, the New York University School of Law, and the University of Oxford, in Oxford, England.  In addition to academic work, Professor Bradley seeks to bring legal change through law practice as well. He is counsel to a consortium of real estate industry groups supporting, as amici, a challenge of protectionist real estate broker regulations in the state of Nevada. In addition, he recently joined a small team of lawyers to serve as amici curiae in two cases before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.  Their efforts were part of a successful push to convince the court to reconsider a ruling on an important issue of bankruptcy law and homestead exemptions. See Hawk v. Engelhart, No. 16-20641 (successfully supporting reconsideration of initial ruling); Lowe v. DeBerry, No. 17-50315 (successfully supporting reversal of district court opinion; amicus brief is cited in opinion dated Mar. 7, 2018).
