Barrett Confirmation on one page – October 9, 2020

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Amy Coney Barrett joined the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit in October 2017. A graduate of Notre Dame University Law School, Barrett clerked for the late conservative Justice Antonin Scalia and later returned to Notre Dame’s law school as a member of the faculty. If confirmed, Barrett would be the fifth woman to serve on the Court and the youngest justice confirmed since Clarence Thomas was elevated to the Court at age 43 in 1991. In preparation, Dentons’ Public Policy team has developed a Barrett Confirmation primer to provide insight into the confirmation process.
