Ms. Julia Jenae

CourtTV


Julia is an anchor and legal correspondent for Court TV, a national legal journalism network based in Atlanta, where she has covered historic trials and high profile cases since its relaunch in 2019.

Prior to joining Court TV, she spent several years in Jacksonville, Florida as an investigative reporter for First Coast News and in East Texas reporting for KLTV's investigative team. While in Texas, she was awarded a Gavel Award from the State Bar of Texas for her investigation into a rogue employer who was siphoning thousands in child support funds away from a local father's paycheck. Julia is a three-time EMMY award recipient for investigative reports, some of which prompted state investigations, policy changes, and reimbursement of taxpayer money.

She received her Bachelor's in Journalism and Spanish from Mercer University then went on to attend Coastal Law and the University of Miami School of Law pursuing her Juris Doctor. After law school, she practiced as a civil litigation attorney in Atlanta for several years before pursuing her passion for helping people through journalism. She is a member of the Florida Bar and State Bar of Georgia. 

She has covered historic trials in courtrooms across the country, including that of disgraced media mogul Harvey Weinstein, singer R. Kelly’s sex trafficking trial, the Parkland school shooter and the 2021 trials in the murders of George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery.

Outside of the newsroom, she's either working with children in the community, volunteering as an election protection attorney, or somewhere on the beach. She loves to travel and learn new languages and is proficient at Spanish and American Sign Language.
