National Association of Attorneys General
Spring Supreme Court Fellows Arrive
The NAAG Supreme Court Fellows program gives state lawyers an opportunity to obtain direct and intensive hands-on exposure to U.S. Supreme Court practice. The Fellows work in NAAG’s Washington, D.C., office for three- to four-month periods 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 Report. The following Fellows were selected for the spring term (March –June):
Courtney Brewer is the deputy solicitor general in the Florida Office of the Attorney General. She represents the state of Florida in civil appeals, including cases involving state constitutional law and statutory interpretation. Additionally, she has drafted amicus briefs on behalf of Florida to the U.S. Supreme Court on federal constitutional claims, and assisted in the briefing and preparation of three of Florida’s five cases at the Supreme Court this term. Prior to her current position, Courtney clerked for Justice Charles Wells at the Florida Supreme Court. During her time there, she researched and analysed a variety of legal issues in appeals and motions, preparing memoranda summarizing the arguments of the parties, analysing the law, and recommending disposition. In her spare time, Courtney enjoys running and this year completed her first triathlon and marathon. Courtney received her B.A. from the University of Florida and her J.D. from Duke University.
Robert Taylor is the assistant attorney general in the criminal appeals division of the Maryland Office of the Attorney General. In this capacity, he researches, writes and argues criminal appeals on behalf of the state in the Maryland appellate courts, serves on the moot courts for other divisions within the Office of Attorney General, and handles cases for other divisions as needed. Previously, Robert was a general litigation and criminal defense attorney in private practice. Prior to his legal career, Robert worked in employee communications, marketing and media relations.
