In 2012, Kadens was a Kluge Fellow at the Library of Congress doing research on medieval theories of custom and for the Spring Semester of 2013 she received the Richard & Diane Cummins Legal History Research Grant at George Washington University Law School. Her current research focuses on the historical problem of how custom functioned as law, the history of bankruptcy, and early modern commercial law.
