Biden Lies About His Law School Credentials, Judge Amy Barrett Actually Achieved Scholastic Greatness
While Judge Barrett achieved academic prominence, Joe Biden opts to lie about his college credentials.
Judge Amy Barrett earned her B.A. in English literature, magna cum laude, from Rhodes College, where she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. The faculty chose her as the most outstanding graduate in the college’s English department. She earned her J.D., summa cum laude, from Notre Dame, where she was a Kiley Fellow, earned the Hoynes Prize, the Law School’s highest honor, as the number one student in her class, and served as executive editor of the Notre Dame Law Review.
Before joining the Notre Dame faculty, Judge Barrett clerked for Judge Laurence H. Silberman of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit and Associate Justice Antonin Scalia of the U.S. Supreme Court. As an associate at Miller, Cassidy, Larroca & Lewin in Washington, D.C., she litigated constitutional, criminal, and commercial cases in both trial and appellate courts. Judge Barrett has served as a visiting associate professor and John M. Olin Fellow in Law at the George Washington University Law School as a visiting associate professor of law at the University of Virginia and is a member of the American Law Institute (ALI).
In contrast, Joe Biden boasted that he received a full academic scholarship to law school, ended up at the top of his class, won the moot court competition, received three degrees, and received the university’s outstanding student award from the University of Delaware.
BIDEN CAUGHT LYING ON VIDEO
It turned out that Biden did not receive a full academic scholarship, but a half scholarship based on financial need. He did not end up in the top half of his class, but near the very bottom. There is no record of him winning the moot court competition. He did not receive the outstanding student award at the University of Delaware. And he graduated with only one degree.
Worse, his academic record release showed that Biden had plagiarized five pages of a law review article.
Biden was also busted for lifting lines from British Labor politician Neil Kinnock and other politicians’ speeches. In Kinnock’s case, he even took biographical details as his own, such as that he was the first member of his family to attend college. That was true for Kinnock, but it was not true for Biden, as he admitted in 1987. See Federalist.
