Catholic, woman, mother, young: a pioneer in the Supreme Court
Palabras clave:Amy Coney Barret, Supreme Court, Justices biography, Natural law, Catholic
This short article is part of a larger project titled The Catholic Supreme Court Justices, which will include an intellectual biography of each and every Catholic Justice in the history of the Supreme Court of the United States. This segment is on Amy Coney Barrett. It first highlights her unusual choices in educational matters; next, it focuses on her family and her work. Regarding the latter, it analyzes both her short stint in the bench of the federal Court of Appeals and her even shorter one (at the time this contribution was penned) at the Supreme Court. It concludes that to understand correctly the relevance of the Catholicity of this Justice of the Supreme Court, one needs to understand the teachings of the Catholic Church on separation of Church and State (and of religion and law).
Justice Barrett visited Notre Dame Law School once more as recently as February 2023, this time to hear a Moot Court argument: https://law.nd.edu/news-events/news/2023-moot-court-showcase-argument/, last visited on 9 March 2023
