Four Professors Join the Law School Faculty

Winter 2012

In July, Anu Bradford, Jessica Bulman-Pozen, Jody S. Kraus, and David Pozen became the newest members of the Columbia Law School faculty. With the addition of these four scholars, Dean David M. Schizer has now added a total of 32 faculty members to the Law School in his more than eight years as dean.

Bradford, who came to Columbia Law School by way of the University of Chicago Law School, is a renowned scholar of international law and international relations. Her research projects examine the influence of state power, domestic preferences, and international organizations on international economic law.

Bulman-Pozen, who recently served as an attorney-adviser in the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Legal Counsel, is a scholar and teacher of administrative law, antidiscrimination law, constitutional law, and federalism. She previously served as a law clerk to U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens and Judge Merrick B. Garland of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

Kraus, previously the David E. Kaufman & Leopold C. Glass Professor of Law at the University of Pennsylvania Law School and a co-director of the Institute for Law and Philosophy, is an expert on contracts and commercial law. His scholarship focuses on the relationship between moral and economic theories of law in general, and on contract law in particular.

David Pozen, who was most recently a special adviser to the U.S. Department of State’s Legal Adviser, brings expertise in several areas of public law and in the law of nonprofit organizations. He previously served as special assistant to Senator Edward M. Kennedy on the Senate Judiciary Committee.
