Episode 11

Judge Nancy G. Abudu

In this bonus episode, Judge Nancy G. Abudu – the newest judge on the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals – joins David Oscar Markus for an open discussion about her career, the confirmation process, and the Court itself.

Almost all appellate judges served as lower court judges and bring that experience with them to the appellate bench. But Judge Nancy Abudu’s path was quite different. In this bonus episode of For the Defense, Judge Abudu discusses her unique path, as well as why that professional and personal diversity is so important to the bench. You’ll also hear how down-to-earth and humble she is, how she spends her free time, a little about her first few opinions on the court, and more.
