Travis Crum is a Litigation & Dispute Resolution associate in Mayer Brown’s Washington DC office and a member of the firm’s Supreme Court & Appellate practice. Prior to joining Mayer Brown, Travis served as a law clerk to Justice Anthony Kennedy and Justice (Ret.) John Paul Stevens on the US Supreme Court, Judge David Tatel on the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit, and Judge Myron Thompson on the US District Court for the Middle District of Alabama. He was also a Bristow Fellow in the Office of the Solicitor General of the United States. Travis has argued and won a case before the US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.

Travis has extensive experience in election law. In 2014, The Wall Street Journal described Travis’s Yale Law Journal note as the “blueprint” for the “Obama administration’s new legal strategy to preserve decades of minority-voting rights” in the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s decision striking down the Voting Rights Act’s coverage formula. Travis’s “roadmap,” the newspaper stated, relies on Section 3 of the Voting Rights Act, which “allows the federal government or private entities to file suit seeking to ‘bail-in’ any jurisdiction, rendering it subject to extra scrutiny, such as preclearance.” Travis is also trained to use Maptitude, a software for drawing redistricting maps.

Travis received his JD from Yale Law School, where he served as Book Reviews & Features Editor on the Yale Law Journal and was a finalist in the Morris Tyler Moot Court competition. He was also a student director of Yale’s Supreme Court Advocacy Clinic, where he helped draft certiorari-stage and merits briefs filed at the US Supreme Court. Travis received his BA from Johns Hopkins University and his MSc from the London School of Economics.
