Newsroom (October 16, 2020, Gaudium Press) — More than 600 students and alumni of the University of Notre Dame Law School have addressed a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee. They praise Judge Amy Coney Barret and look forward to her confirmation as a U.S. Supreme Court justice.

“We are convinced that Judge Barrett will bring to the Supreme Court the same intelligence, fairness, decency, generosity, humility, and hard work she has demonstrated at Notre Dame Law School and in her time on the Seventh Circuit,” says Conor Dugan, a 2003 graduate of Notre Dame Law School who is now working as an attorney.

After asserting that Judge Barrett will continue to treat each litigant with respect and care, the letter highlights both the judge’s academic qualities and the skills she demonstrated as a professor at Notre Dame Law School.

“We have come to know and love Judge Barrett, however, not for her impressive credentials, but for her presence, enthusiasm, and intellect as a faculty member at Notre Dame Law School. Judge Barrett understands that the students she teaches today will be the lawyers of tomorrow–real-world professionals in whom great trust will be placed,” the letter says.

“As a result, she is a demanding instructor, expecting her students to think deeply about the law and constantly challenging them to do so.”
