Over 600 students and alumni of Notre Dame Law School have signed a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee in support of Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.
“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 the letter, which was written by Conor Dugan, a 2003 graduate of Notre Dame Law School who works as an attorney.
The letter is addressed to Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC), the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), the ranking member of the committee.
“Barrett will continue to treat each litigant with respect and care, conscious of the reality that judicial decisions greatly affect the lives of those before the court. And she will apply the law faithfully and impartially,” says the letter.
