For the first time in a decade, the U.S. Supreme Court includes a justice who was not educated at either Yale Law School or Harvard Law School.

The Senate’s Monday confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett marks the first time since the 2010 retirement of John Paul Stevens that all nine justices did not attend one of those two elite institutions. Barrett graduated from the University of Notre Dame Law School in 1997, where she was first in her class and the editor of the school’s flagship law review. She returned to the South Bend, Indiana, campus in 2002 as a faculty member and remained there until 2017 when President Donald Trump appointed her to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. She continued to teach part-time after her move to the bench.
