 Samuel Freeman Miller
Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court
July 16, 1862 – October 13, 1890
Nominated by Abraham Lincoln

Active in Hawkeye politics, he supported Abraham Lincoln in the 1860 election. Lincoln nominated Miller to the Supreme Court on July 16, 1862, after the beginning of the American Civil War.

His reputation was so high that Miller was confirmed half an hour after the Senate received notice of his nomination.

 Are there qualifications to be a Justice?

Do you have to be a lawyer or attend law school to be a Supreme Court Justice?

 The Constitution does not specify qualifications for Justices such as age, education, profession, or native-born citizenship. A Justice does not have to be a lawyer or a law school graduate, but all Justices have been trained in the law. Many of the 18th and 19th century Justices studied law under a mentor because there were few law schools in the country.

 Stanley Forman Reed, who served on the Court from 1938 to 1957, was the last sitting justice from such a background.

In total, of the 112 justices appointed to the Court, 47 have had law degrees, an additional 18 attended some law school but did not receive a degree, and 47 received their legal education without any law school attendance.[97
