Jordan of the Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.
     Ms. Hall is a 2006 graduate of the University of Pennsylvania Law School. Before law school, she earned a B.S. in Biochemistry from the University of Minnesota as well as an M.Phil. and Ph.D. in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry from Yale University.
     Ms. Hall’s selection was the culmination of a process that included the screening of dozens of applications by a Merit Selection Panel as well as interviews by the Panel and the Court. The Court expresses its gratitude to the members of the Panel for their diligent and important service to the Court.
     The Court looks forward to welcoming Ms. Hall to the bench later this year.
