Professor Bray teaches Remedies and related seminars, as well as Property. In May-June 2013 he will be a Lawrence E. Irell Visiting Scholar at the Haifa University Faculty of Law, teaching Non-Monetary Remedies.
Bray is a graduate of the University of Chicago Law School, where he was book review editor for the University of Chicago Law Review. He clerked for Judge Michael W. McConnell on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit. After practicing law at Mayer Brown LLP, he was an associate-in-law at Columbia Law School and then Executive Director of the Constitutional Law Center at Stanford Law School.
Bray’s research explores structural problems in the law of remedies, and in particular problems related to the functions, timing, and institutional demands of different remedies. His recent scholarly work includes an exploration of the relationship between the declaratory judgment and the injunction, The Myth of the Mild Declaratory Judgment, 63 Duke L.J. (forthcoming); an account of when remedies should be determined and declared in advance, Announcing Remedies, 97 Cornell L. Rev. 753 (2012); a normative theory of the declaratory judgment, Preventive Adjudication, 77 U. Chi. L. Rev. 1275 (2010); and an exploration of how the law protects the vulnerable, Power Rules, 110 Colum. L. Rev. 1172 (2010). Professor Bray is also a co-author of The Constitution of the United States (2010) (with Professors Paulsen, Calabresi, and McConnell).
