Teaching at Indiana University 
Bradford joined the faculty of Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law in the fall of 2002 after serving in the Army Reserve. He also served at the War Gaming and Simulation Center, National Defense University, Fort McNair, Virginia, and was an adviser to Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Shalikashvili. At Indiana University, he taught international law, federal Indian law, property, national security/foreign relations law, and the laws of armed conflict.
Bradford has written man law review articles on international law, the laws of war, and federal Indian law. One of his articles was published in the Notre Dame Law Review, v. 79, (2004), titled, "The Duty to Defend Them: A Natural Legal Justification of the Bush Doctrine of Preventative War". He is also a frequent commentator in local and national media on laws of war issues regarding Iraq and the War on Terror. On December 16, 2003, he was a guest on The Big Story With John Gibson, commenting on the tactics interrogators were likely to use on the just-captured Saddam Hussein. He was named a Dean's Fellow in recognition of scholarly excellence in both 2004-2005 and 2005–2006, and was voted Best New Professor by Indiana Law students in 2005.
Bradford resigned from Indiana University in 2005 following a dispute over tenure.
Tenure controversy 
In 2005 Bradford applied for tenure, but faced opposition from some faculty members following a non-binding straw poll that indicated the five out of 15 polled faculty members did not believe Bradford was likely to be awarded his request for tenure. Bradford said that the opposition was based on his conservative views, including his support of the Iraq war and his refusal to support Ward Churchill. University officials said that Bradford was "uncollegial." Multiple news outlets reported on the story in the wake of the Ward Churchill scandal.
Future after Indiana University 
In the fall of 2005 Bradford served as a visiting professor at The College of William & Mary; at this time his profile said he was an Associate Judge Pro Tempore, Court of Appeals, for the Fort Sill Apache Nation. He then considered joining the visiting faculty of Victoria University of Wellington School of Law in New Zealand in Spring 2006.
William Bradford holds an MBA from the Warrington College of Business, the business school of the University of Florida. He is also currently a professor at the United States Coast Guard Academy.
