As Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson prepares to face the Senate Judiciary Committee next week, veteran Capitol Hill lawyers have been studying her record and preparing senators to question President Joe Biden’s historic nominee.

Both parties typically bring in a team of outside lawyers and law students to work with attorneys assigned to the Judiciary Committee to pore over a nominee’s record, review past opinions and orders as well as legal writings, and develop talking points for senators, according to people familiar with the process. It’s a weeks-long project that involves review of thousands of pages of material.
