Laura Wolk delivered a touching testimony of Barrett’s kindness and encouragement as Wolk navigated Notre Dame Law School, and later a Supreme Court clerkship, with her disability. Wolk credited Barrett’s aid for her becoming the first blind person to clerk at the Supreme Court.
Wolk started her first year at Notre Dame Law School behind after she was left without the “assistive technology” she needed, and her personal computer began to fail. Though she had requested backups from the school before her arrival, “bureaucratic glitches” resulted in Notre Dame not having any backup technology on hand for Wolk to use.
Wolk said that after her meeting with Barrett, “the technology arrived promptly,” and helped set her on a path to clerk at the Supreme Court.
“Though I am here today to share with you my story, the very best aspect of that story is that it is hardly unique. Those who have had the benefit of knowing Amy Coney Barrett understand that she possesses a boundless font of energy and a radical sense of love that she is ever-ready to pour out upon those lucky enough to call her teacher, boss, family, and friend,” Wolk concluded. “Judge Barrett will serve this country with distinction, not only because of her intellectual prowess, but also because of her ability to treat everyone as an equal, deserving of complete respect. As a beneficiary of both of these qualities, I urge you to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court of the United States.”
