Cincinnati Media: Greater Cincinnati professionals reflect on Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s SCOTUS confirmation

UC Law students and faculty discuss the impact of the first black woman on the U.S. Supreme Court

For the first time ever, there will be four women on the nation's highest court, as well as two Black justices and a Latina. The court will better reflect the diversity of the country. The pathway for Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to U.S. Supreme Court justice has been analyzed, discussed and celebrated by students and faculty of the University of Cincinnati College of Law.

UC College of Law Dean Verna Williams visited the downtown studio of Fox 19 to discuss Judge Jackson’s historic confirmation proceedings while UC law student Ashley Nkadi celebrated news of the U.S. Senate approving Brown’s confirmation with an interview with WLWT-Channel 5.  The U.S. Senate voted 53-47, largely along party lines, to approve Brown to the high court with three Republican senators, Susan Collins of Maine, Mitt Romney of Utah, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.
