National Association of Attorneys General
Supreme Court Fellows Selected for New Term
The NAAG Supreme Court Fellows program presents assistant attorney generals (AAG) with an opportunity for direct and rigorous exposure to the practices of the U.S. Supreme Court. This hands-on experience allows selected AAGs to come to Washington, D.C. for a three-month period during the Court’s argument session. They watch oral arguments, participate in moot courts, prepare an amicus brief in a Supreme Court case, and draft the biweekly Supreme Court Report. The following two fellows will be working with NAAG Supreme Court counsel from October to December:
Ali M. Brady is an assistant attorney general in the Civil Division in the Arkansas Attorney General’s Office. For the past two years she has specialized in civil rights cases including ballot access, employment litigation, inmate civil rights claims, and public school desegregation litigation. Ali has argued several times before the Eight Circuit Court of Appeals. A graduate of The University of Arkansas Law School, Ali won the Appellate Advocacy Prize and later received an LL.M. degree from American University’s Washington College of Law and its Program on Law and Government, with certification in Constitutional Law and Civil Rights. Her undergraduate degree in history is from Hendrix College in Arkansas.

He has represented the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for the past six years in both federal and state court concerning habeas corpus actions and complex state criminal appeals.
