Jane Branstetter Stranch was confirmed to the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in 2010. Prior to her appointment, Judge Stranch was a member of the Nashville law firm Branstetter, Stranch and Jennings, where she has developed a national practice in labor and employment law and specialized in complex ERISA litigation. Her ERISA work required Stranch to develop an understanding of one of the most complex and rapidly changing areas of federal law as it develops across the federal circuits. Stranch’s extensive practice has given her significant experience in alternative forms of dispute resolution including mediation and arbitration. She has also practiced before the Tennessee Regulatory Authority where she worked on a range of environmental issues. She has taught labor law at Belmont University and served on the AFL-CIO Lawyers Coordinating Committee. She is also an active member of her community and dedicates considerable time to pro bono work, civic matters, and her church. She received her bachelors degree from Vanderbilt University in 1975 and her law degree from Vanderbilt University School of Law in 1978.
