UM Law Faculty Serve on ABA Reading Group to Evaluate Qualifications of Supreme Court Nominee

OXFORD, Miss. – Twelve University of Mississippi School of Law professors just completed service as part of a reading group for the American Bar Association’s Standing Committee on the Federal Judiciary to evaluate the qualifications of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett.

The reading group, chaired by UM Professor of Law Chris Green, was one of two academic reading groups commissioned by the Standing Committee to review the nominee’s legal writings throughout her career.

“Our team worked hard to gather, distribute, read, and evaluate the legal writings from Judge Barrett’s time on the Seventh Circuit and as a professor,” said Green. “It was a great honor for our faculty to be asked to do it.”

Additionally, the Standing Committee was chaired by Randy Noel, a UM alumnus and attorney with Butler Snow in Memphis, Tennessee.
