Judge Amy Coney Barrett: An Historic Nomination

NCLA’s Litigation Counsel Adi Dynar and NCLA Senior Litigation Counsel Peggy Little join featured guest panelist, Renee Knake Jefferson.

Ms. Jefferson co-authored Shortlisted: Women in the Shadows of the Supreme Court with Hannah Brenner Johnson. The book tells the overlooked stories of nine extraordinary women who appeared on presidential lists during the 1930s and onward. Her insight into the nomination and upcoming confirmation of Judge Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court will help shed light on the practical realities of confirming the fifth female Associate Justice of the United States.

Ms. Little, who reviewed Judge Barrett’s written work in detail, provides insight into the cases Judge Barrett has decided as a judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.
