The president will make the announcement during a White House event on Saturday.
Judge Barrett currently serves on the Chicago-based 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. At 48 years old, she would be the youngest justice on the High Court.
She is a former law clerk for the late Justice Antonin Scalia and graduated first in her class from Notre Dame Law in 1997. She served as a visiting professor at George Washington University Law School before returning to her alma mater in 2002. At Notre Dame, she's been named "Distinguished Professor of the Year" three times and has taught Constitutional Law, Civil Procedure, Evidence, Federal Courts, Constitutional Theory Seminar and Statutory Interpretation Seminar. She continues to teach seminars as a sitting judge.
Liberty Counsel Founder and Chairman Mat Staver said, "Amy Coney Barrett is the right choice for the U.S. Supreme Court because she applies the intent and text of the Constitution to the statutes she reviews. A judge should be a neutral interpreter of the Constitution who knows what it means to interpret and apply the law rather than an activist legislator who tries to create the law."
