fallon-600x350.jpgIn September of this year, Catholic Law alumna Christine Luchok Fallon ’77 retired from her position as the Reporter of Decisions for the United States Supreme Court after 31 years of working for the Court. Fallon began working for the Supreme Court in 1989, serving as Deputy Report of Decisions. In 2011, she became the 16th Reporter of Decisions and the first woman to hold the position. Fallon’s career has run longer than any current sitting Justices. During her 40th Reunion Weekend in 2017, Fallon returned to the Law School to present an exhibit about Catholic Law's extraordinary relationship with the Supreme Court.

The Reporter of Decisions is one of five positions at the Supreme Court created by law and is selected by all nine Supreme Court Justices. In her role, Fallon was responsible for the technical edits of Supreme Court opinions as well as producing syllabi—analytical summaries—of the opinions.
