United States federal judge Amy Coney Barrett has been chosen by Trump to succeed the most recent Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Ginsburg, who died at age 87 on Sept. 18. Barrett is known as an American jurist and according to whitehouse.gov, she’s extensively experienced as a professor and litigator, she has an outstanding judicial record, and she holds a record of academic success.

To address the credibility in Barrett’s praise, the whitehouse.gov mentioned that law professors from the top schools in our nation, such as Harvard and Stanford, described her work as “rigorous, fair-minded, respectful, and constructive.” They chose such adjectives in urging the Senate Judiciary Committee to confirm Judge Barrett to the Seventh Circuit; which Donald Trump appointed her to in 2017.

She graduated first in her class at Notre Dame Law School and she graduated with great distinction from Rhodes College in Tennessee. In accordance to wsj.com, today she’s on Capitol Hill meeting with Republican senators two weeks before her confirmation hearings are scheduled to begin. These meetings are usually held in ceremony and style but are instead held in rapid succession, just before the 2020 election.
