Biography

For the past ten years, Durham served the federal judiciary as a career law clerk to Hon. Kenneth Ripple. She previously held a Skadden Fellowship at Indiana Legal Services, providing holistic legal services to immigrant victims of violence throughout the state and training local law enforcement agencies on issues concerning immigrant communities.

Durham is a 2006 summa cum laude graduate of Notre Dame Law School, where she held the Fr. Michael D. McCafferty, C.S.C., Fellowship in Law and was the executive production editor of the Notre Dame Law Review. Durham earned her BA in the Program of Liberal Studies, summa cum laude, from the University of Notre Dame in 2001, where she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa.

Before attending law school, Durham worked for the Office of Government Liaison at the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and for the Midwest Immigrant and Human Rights Center. In both positions, she focused on issues relating to particularly vulnerable immigrant populations, including unaccompanied children, asylum seekers, refugees, and victims of human trafficking and other forms of violence.
