JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – Jackson attorney Debra M. Brown is schedule to go before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday for the start of her confirmation hearing for a federal judgeship in north Mississippi.

President Barack Obama nominated Brown in May. The judgeship presides over court in Greenville, Miss.

If confirmed, Brown would become the state’s first black female district judge.

The post became open in 2012 by the death of Judge W. Allen Pepper Jr.

The committee hearing is scheduled for 9 a.m. central time at the Dirksen Senate Office Building in Washington, D.C.

Brown works in the Jackson law firm Wise Carter Child & Caraway.

Brown graduated with a bachelor’s degree in architecture from Mississippi State University in 1987 and a law degree from the University of Mississippi in 1997.
