Cristie Ford teaches and writes in the fields of administrative law, securities 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 has been a Co-Director of UBC's National Centre for Business Law (NCBL), Chair of the Research and Education Committee of the Canadian Institute for the Administration of Justice (CIAJ), and twice she has served as a consultant to the federal government on the design of a national securities regulator. With His Excellency David Johnston and Kathleen Rockwell, she is co-authoring the fifth edition of the text Canadian Securities Regulation (forthcoming 2013). Professor Ford is on leave in academic year 2012-2013. She is at work on a project that examines the relationship between regulation and innovation (Cambridge University Press: forthcoming 2013).
