After graduating from Notre Dame Law School, Judge Barrett clerked for Justice Antonin Scalia and Judge Laurence Silberman on the D.C. Circuit. After a stint in private practice, Judge Barrett was a law professor at Notre Dame from 2002 to 2017. She was nominated by President Donald Trump, and confirmed by the Senate, as a judge on the Seventh Circuit in 2017. Judge Barrett was also a finalist to be appointed to the Supreme Court to replace Justice Kennedy in 2018, and she is widely considered to be a potential appointee to the Supreme Court in the future.
