understandable that irishlaw "would" but it appears that her husband already "did" quite often - who has 7 freaking children in 2017?

and how did she possibly have time for clerkships, biglaw, Fellowships and tenured law prof? (I know that lawprofs are notoriously underworked, but still, 7 kids?)

the ostensible aversion to birth control combined with the Scalia clerkship strongly suggests a right-wing anti-choice whackjob.

According to her profile she was only in private practice for like 3 years, probably before she started having kids. Lawprof is probably a very mommy-friendly gig.

N.D. is a total "trap school."
If you don't graduate top of the class, you will be hustling for doc review work along with every other Valparaiso grad. But hey, you can "My con law prof. is on the 7th Cir." as you doing doc rev. for 20 bucks an hour. (Not quite like U. of Chicago grads who can say, "My con law prof. was the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.")

Haters gonna hate..s'okay though because she's conservative/religious

I heard her give a presentation once to a live audience ... she's imminently qualified and just as importantly, her philosophy means she will be restrained by the law. Sad to see ND lose a shining star but they will reload.

OP, this should have been posted in the off topic section of JDU

She seems like a very impressive woman.

I like the fact that she didn't graduate from Harvard or one of the top 14, but at #20 Notre Dame is still quite impressive.

However, I do have one gripe that seems to be pervasive among top attorneys: she was an English major! Sorry, but as a double science major (from an Ivy League school) that could only manage admission into a school ranked 30-40 notches below Notre Dame, it just seems so capricious who the legal profession "crowns" to be a successful attorney. Anyway, done venting now.
