Recent Grove City College alumna Jennifer Montazzoli ’18 is now working as an Aide to Chambers for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel A. Alito.
“It was a great honor to receive a job offer from Justice Alito’s chambers, and I am looking forward to serving him in my new role as an Aide to Chambers,” Montazzoli, a Political Science graduate, said when she was hired last fall, a process that included an interview with Alito.
As an aide, she organizes and distributes incoming Supreme Court petitions, circulates memos between justices, prepares the justice’s materials for oral arguments and weekly conference meetings and completes research projects for Alito as needed.
Montazzoli previously worked as a legal assistant at the Becket Fund, which defends religious liberty for people of all faiths. She was devoted to the fund’s mission and gained experience there editing and filing briefs to the Supreme Court. She’s looking forward to expanding her knowledge of the judicial process in her new job.
“I’ve always been passionate about judiciary issues and social policy, especially the freedom to believe, so that’s where I plan to direct my career,” she said.
At Grove City College, she studied political science, did research as a fellow for The Institute for Faith and Freedom, edited articles for the Journal of Law and Public Policy, worked in the President’s Office, and acted a teacher’s assistant to Dr. Michael L. Coulter. Each of these experiences grew her in mind, body and spirit, she said.
“I owe much of my success to Grove City College and I wouldn’t be where I am now without the support of countless faculty and staff,” Montazzoli said.
