Judge Andrew Brasher

Judge Andrew Brasher joins David Oscar Markus to discuss all things Eleventh Circuit.

Judge Brasher joined the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals when he was 39 years old. Having clerked for Judge William Pryor and worked as the Alabama Solicitor General, he is part of the well-known Judge Pryor “judging tree,” along with Judge Kevin Newsom and others. He discusses how he navigates being on the same court with his mentor and former boss, his philosophy on legal writing, and how he hires his law clerks. We also discuss some of his recent criminal law opinions.
