Law School

Curtis A. Bradley has been named the inaugural Allen M. Singer Professor of Law.

Bradley, a pioneer in the study and teaching of comparative foreign relations law and an international leader in the broader field of foreign relations law, joined the Law School in July 2021 after 16 years at Duke Law.

Bradley—whose work has been cited in numerous court decisions, including at least seven times by the U.S. Supreme Court—writes on issues such as the war powers of Congress and the president, the making of and withdrawal from international agreements, the presidential use of emergency powers, and the status of international law within the U.S. legal system. He has written or edited more than a half dozen books, including The Oxford Handbook of Comparative Foreign Relations Law, a 900-page volume that earlier this year was awarded the American Society of International Law’s inaugural Robert E. Dalton Award for Outstanding Contribution in the Field of Foreign Relations Law.

Bradley graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law School in 1988, and then clerked for Judge David Ebel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit and Justice Byron White of the U.S. Supreme Court.
