Andrew Bain will serve in the Ninth Judicial Circuit, where he has worked as a prosecutor.
ORLANDO, Fla – Florida A&M University College of Law alumnus Andrew Bain has been appointed by Gov. Ron DeSantis as a judge for the Ninth Judicial Circuit in Orange County.
Orlando-based Bain has been an assistant state attorney in the Ninth Circuit since 2013.
“I am the descendant of slaves, sharecroppers, and migrant farmers, but also of warriors, peace makers, and people of God. I am thankful for all these things, because they have led me to where I am today,” said Bain. “I am forever grateful to Governor DeSantis for his faith in me. I look forward to serving the people of Florida and Orange County.”
The Lauderdale Lakes native received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Miami before earning his law degree from FAMU College of Law in 2013. Bain fills the vacancy created by the retirement of Judge Nancy Clark.
Other notable FAMU Law alumni who are current judges include:
Judge Amy Carter, Ninth Judicial Circuit
Judge Gabrielle Sanders-Morency, Ninth Judicial Circuit
Judge Kelly Ingram, 18 Judicial Circuit
Judge Stacie Kaylor, 10th Judicial Circuit
Judge Brouck Jacobs, 13th Judicial Circuit of Missouri
They join several other graduates of the original FAMU College of Law who have served as judges, including Ralph Flowers (1968), Alcee Hastings (1963), Perker Meeks (1968) and Edward Rogers (1963).
