    Laura Wolk, an attorney in Washington, D.C., became the first blind woman to clerk at the U.S. Supreme Court last year when she clerked for Justice Clarence Thomas during the high court’s 2019-2020 term.

    Wolk, who is Catholic, earned a B.A. in psychology at Swarthmore College in 2009 and spent three years doing social work in Philadelphia assisting low-income individuals with disabilities. She subsequently decided to pursue a law degree and graduated summa cum laude in 2016 from Notre Dame Law School, where Judge Amy Coney Barrett was her teacher and mentor. After graduation, Wolk clerked for Judge Janice Rogers Brown of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit and Judge Thomas Hardiman of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit.
