The Institute for Free Speech is pleased to welcome Stephanie Brown as our newest First Amendment Fellow. Over the next year, Stephanie will work alongside our attorneys on all aspects of trial and appellate litigation in cases challenging restrictions on Americans’ First Amendment rights to speak, publish, assemble, and petition the government.
“I am thrilled to join the Institute for Free Speech as a First Amendment Fellow. IFS works to protect a fundamental right that is essential to American democracy: political speech. The First Amendment remains at the forefront of our national consciousness, and I am extremely excited to work with IFS on cases that seek to defend it,” said Stephanie.
Prior to joining IFS, Stephanie clerked for the Honorable Louis Guirola, Jr., of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Mississippi. After she completes her fellowship, she will clerk for the Honorable Kurt D. Engelhardt of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.
Stephanie is licensed to practice law in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Colorado. She obtained her J.D. from Tulane University Law School, where she also served as a managing editor of the Tulane Maritime Law Journal. Stephanie was also inducted into the Order of Barristers for her role on the Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot Court Team, where she twice competed in Hong Kong.
Stephanie also holds both a M.B.A. and B.A. in Public Management from Millsaps College in Jackson, Mississippi.
Please join us in welcoming Stephanie to our team.
