About the Speaker

Cristie Ford teaches and writes in the fields of administrative law, securities and financial regulation, and regulation studies. Her research focuses primarily on regulatory theory as it relates to Canadian and international financial and securities regulation. Publications in the area have analyzed novel remedies in securities law enforcement, principles-based approaches to securities regulation, and prospects for “responsive” financial regulation. Professor Ford joined UBC in 2005 from Columbia Law School, where she pursued her graduate degrees and taught in a variety of capacities. She has practised securities, regulatory and administrative law in Vancouver and New York. Professor Ford is an editor of the international and interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal, Regulation & Governance. She is the current Director of UBC’s Centre for Business Law (CBL) and is a member of the Academic Advisory Board of the Canadian Coalition for Good Governance (CCGG). She has also served as Chair of the Research and Education Committee of the Canadian Institute for the Administration of Justice (CIAJ), and has served as a consultant on several occasions on the design of a cooperative or national securities regulatory regime. With His Excellency David Johnston and Kathleen Rockwell, Professor Ford co-authored the fifth edition of the text Canadian Securities Regulation. She is also at work on a project for Cambridge University Press, which examines the relationship between regulation and innovation.

The Murphy Institute

Established in memory of Charles H. Murphy, Sr. (1870-1954), and inspired by the vision of Charles H. Murphy, Jr. (1920-2002), The Murphy Institute exists to help Tulane faculty and students understand economic, moral, and political problems we all face and think about. More important, it exists to help us understand how these problems have come to be so closely interconnected.
