At just 48, Judge Amy Coney Barrett brings with her the promise of shaping American law for a generation. By Elizabeth Dias , Rebecca R. Ruiz and Sharon LaFraniere. In the audience were her parents, in town from her childhood home in New Orleans, and her husband, who had described her as a kind of superwoman, along with six of their seven children, who led the group in the Pledge of Allegiance. And there were many friends — from law school, her Supreme Court clerkship and her Catholic parish in South Bend, Ind. Also in attendance were a number of prominent conservative legal figures, mentors who had helped make this moment happen.
