BYU law professor headed to the Supreme Court

A law professor at Brigham Young University is headed to the Supreme Court.

The university announced Wednesday first-year faculty member Stephanie Barclay will clerk for Justice Neil Gorsuch during the 2021 term.

The 31-year-old Barclay says she is “excited and humbled” to work for Gorsuch.

As a clerk, Barclay will help Gorsuch study and respond to cases the Supreme Court has been asked to hear. Each justice typically has four clerks, who can be fresh out of law school or more established in their career.

Barclay, who graduated from BYU Law in 2011, previously served as a clerk for the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Barclay is listed as a contributor at The Federalist Society, a group of attorneys who have pushed to appoint more conservative judges.
