Neil Gorsuch

The president nominated Neil Gorsuch, a visiting professor at Colorado Law School, for the U.S. Supreme Court. If confirmed, he would succeed Antonin Scalia, who died last year. Gorsuch, a federal appeals court judge based in Denver, has taught ethics and antitrust law at Colorado Law since 2008. He lives in Boulder. His parents, Anne Gorsuch Burford and David Gorsuch, were both members of Colorado Law’s Class of 1964. Gorsuch went to Harvard Law School. Two CU Boulder alumni have served on the U.S. Supreme Court: Byron White (Econ’38) and Wiley Rutledge (Law’22).
