The Center for American and International Law (CAIL) welcomes Justice Brett Busby, current Justice of the Supreme Court of Texas and a former justice of the 14th Court of Appeals of Texas, as its newest board member effective February 10, 2023. CAIL’s board is comprised of 48 members whose distinguished accomplishments, diverse perspectives, and expansive range of legal and business experience help guide CAIL to achieve its mission of promoting the rule of law through the professional development of legal professionals and law enforcement officers in the United States and around the world.

"We're thrilled Justice Busby will serve on our board," remarked CAIL President T.L. Cubbage. "He's a great fit for CAIL. I'm confident that his passion for service and wealth of judicial experience will make him a tremendous asset to the organization.”

“I am honored to join the board of the Center for American and International Law,” Justice Brett Busby said. “America provides an inspiring example of what a nation can accomplish under the rule of law, and I look forward to working with CAIL to share our rule-of-law values with legal and law enforcement professionals worldwide.”

Justice Busby was appointed to the Texas Supreme Court by Governor Greg Abbott in February 2019, confirmed unanimously by the Texas Senate, and elected to a full term in November 2020.
