From 1981 to 1986, Judge Brenner was an administrative judge with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. He was awarded a Congressional Fellowship in 1985, and, on leave as a judge, worked with the United States Congress, primarily on energy and environmental issues.

Judge Brenner is past President of the Federal Administrative Law Judges Conference and the Forum of U.S. Administrative Law Judges.
