Judge Jackson made history in February, becoming the first Black woman to ever be nominated to sit on the nation's highest court. Her nomination to the bench comes after Justice Stephen Breyer announced his retirement in January, following nearly 30 years of service.
Judge Jackson grew up in Florida and is the daughter of public school teachers. Her father, Johnny Brown became a lawyer, which Jackson previously said directly influenced her path into the legal field.
She is a mother of two and most recently served as a federal judge on the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit, considered the second-highest court in the nation.
During the confirmation hearings, Judge Jackson is expected to be questioned about her previous rulings, and her plans to possibly recuse herself from on of the Supreme Court's major cases later this year that involves her alma mater.
