   ABA Federal Judiciary Committee (American Bar Association)
"The Standing Committee on Federal Judiciary of the American Bar Association evaluates the professional qualifications of all nominees to the Supreme Court of the United States, circuit courts of appeals, district courts (including territorial district courts) and the Court of International Trade. The Committee's goal is to support and encourage the selection of the best-qualified persons for the federal judiciary. It restricts its evaluation to issues bearing on professional qualifications and does not consider a nominee's philosophy or ideology."

   Samuel Alito '75 Nominated to U.S. Supreme Court (October 31, 2005) (Yale Law School)
"YLS Dean Harold Hongju Koh made the following statement: "It is always a great honor for our School when the President nominates one of our graduates for such an important post. Since leaving Yale, Judge Alito has certainly been a dedicated public servant, while working in a series of challenging government jobs. Although I have not gotten to know the judge personally, a number of my colleagues on the Yale Law faculty remember him with fondness and respect.


If confirmed, Alito will join fellow YLS graduate Clarence Thomas '74 on the U.S. Supreme Court."
