Janie Nitze has known Judge Neil Gorsuch for nearly a decade. In 2008, after graduating with honors from Harvard Law School, she clerked for him at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit, based in Denver.

Since then, Nitze’s career has taken her to the U.S. Supreme Court, where she clerked for Justice Sonia Sotomayor, and to the Justice Department under President Barack Obama, where she served as an attorney adviser in the Office of Legal Counsel.

Watch our video to hear her story, and why she says Gorsuch would be “enormously helpful” for the Supreme Court.
