Bradley Girard is the Litigation Counsel for Americans United for Separation of Church and State.

Bradley returns to AU after serving as the Steven Gey Constitutional Litigation Fellow from 2015-17. He graduated cum laude from Georgetown Law in 2014. After law school he clerked for the Honorable Neal E. Kravitz on the D.C. Superior Court and on the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit for the Honorable Martha Craig Daughtrey.

Immediately before returning to AU, Bradley was the clinical teaching fellow at Georgetown Law’s Appellate Courts Immersion Clinic, where he taught students public-interest impact litigation in the federal courts of appeals and the U.S Supreme Court. He also earned an LLM in advocacy. During law school, Bradley interned at Gupta Wessler, Public Justice, Mehri & Skalet, and in the civil-rights division of the Institute for Public Representation.

Bradley has been published in the Georgetown Law Journal, the Georgetown Journal on Poverty Law & Policy, Law360, and SCOTUSblog. He enjoys arguing for hyphenation of phrasal adjectives and against two spaces after a period. Bradley’s non-law interests include collecting vinyl (and DJing), baking bread, crossword puzzles, the cosmos, and jumping off of things into water.
