List of federal judges appointed by Ronald Reagan

President Ronald Reagan.
Reagan elevated William Rehnquist to the office of Chief Justice.
Sandra Day O'Connor was appointed by Reagan as the first woman to serve on the Supreme Court.
Reagan named Antonin Scalia to the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit before elevating him to the Supreme Court.
Reagan signed into law the bill that created the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, and reassigning judges from predecessor courts to the new Circuit Court.

Following is a list of all United States federal judges appointed by President Ronald Reagan during his presidency.[1] In total Reagan appointed three Justices to the Supreme Court of the United States and elevated another to Chief Justice, 83 judges to the United States Courts of Appeals, and 290 judges to the United States district courts. Reagan's total of 376 appointments is the most by any President.

In addition to these appointments, Reagan signed the Federal Courts Improvement Act in 1982, which transferred five judges from the United State Court of Customs and Patent Appeals, and seven judges from the appellate division of the United States Court of Claims, into the newly created United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. Although each of those twelve judges had been appointed to their original tribunals by previous presidents, Reagan's signing of the act effectively placed all of them on the new Court of Appeals.
