Anu Bradford (Professor of Law, Columbia Law School)
Anu Bradford joined the Columbia Law School faculty as a professor of law in July 2012. She is a scholar of international economic law and European Union law, and was Columbia's Visiting Assistant D'Atri Professor of Law, Business, and Society in the fall of 2011. From 2008 to 2012, she was an assistant professor at the University of Chicago Law School, where she specialized in international trade law. Before joining the University of Chicago faculty, she taught at Harvard College, Brandeis University, and the University of Helsinki Faculty of Law. Bradford earned her S.J.D. (2007) and LL.M. (2002) degrees from Harvard Law School and also holds a law degree from the University of Helsinki. After completing her LL.M. studies as a Fulbright Scholar at Harvard Law School, Bradford practiced antitrust law and European Union law at Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton in Brussels for two years, before returning to Harvard for her doctoral studies. She has also served as an adviser on economic policy in the Parliament of Finland, and as an expert assistant to a member of the European Parliament. In 2010, Bradford was named a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum.

But Columbia Law School Professor Anu Bradford is drawing attention to the economic and political union for a different reason: Its outsized and underestimated ability to influence worldwide markets through the adoption of its regulatory and legal framework.
In "The Brussels Effect," a law review article just published in the Northwestern University Law Review, Bradford writes that rules and regulations promulgated in the European Union have "penetrated many aspects of economic life within and outside of Europe through the process of 'unilateral regulatory globalization,'" a phenomenon she calls "the Brussels effect."
Unlike in political globalization, in which regulations are adopted after political bodies agree to adhere to them, or unilateral coercion, in which regulations are adopted through the threat or use of sanctions, unilateral regulatory globalization occurs through market mechanisms.
Because the EU has the world's largest internal market, Bradford writes, companies that want to trade with the union must decide whether to adopt one set of standards for Europe and another or multiple other sets of standards for the rest of the world. In most cases, they choose to adopt one standard-that of the EU. Therefore, despite its financial and political shortcomings, the EU is a major force in the global economy.
"While traditional tools of power have waned in importance-it is increasingly difficult to exert influence through raw military power or rely on economic sanctions or conditional incentives-regulatory power that the EU possesses is more durable, more deployable, and less easily undermined by others," Bradford writes.
Bradford joined the Columbia Law School faculty in July. A scholar of international economic law and European Union law, she co-directs the Law School's Center for European Legal Studies. Earlier in her career, she practiced with Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton in Brussels. In 2010, Bradford was named a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum.
