Mornings w/Brian Haldane: Laura Wolk


This morning Brian talks with Laura Wolk, who studied under Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett at Notre Dame from 2013 to 2016. She talk with Brian about her relationship with her and why she feels she is the right choice for the Supreme Court seat.


Wolk, an accomplished graduate of Notre Dame Law School who has been blind since she lost her eyesight to retinal cancer at 15 months old, serves as a tireless advocate for people with disabilities. She excelled at Notre Dame Law School, where she was a member of the Notre Dame Law Review, served as president of the St. Thomas More Society, received a scholarship award, and at graduation earned the Dean Joseph O’Meara Award for outstanding academic excellence. After graduating, she clerked for two federal judges and now serves as a clerk for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas during the 2019 term, making her the third Notre Dame Law School graduate to clerk for Justice Thomas, and the first blind person to clerk for an active justice on the Supreme Court.
