(FOX NEWS) -- Brett Kavanaugh, the newest Supreme Court justice, has kept one of the promises he made during his extremely divisive confirmation process: hiring an all-female contingent of law clerks.

Kavanaugh’s contentious confirmation was nearly derailed after multiple women accused him of sexual misconduct. Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, a California psychology professor, claimed in testimony before Congress that Kavanaugh held her down, attempted to forcibly remove her clothes and prevented her from screaming while at a social gathering in the early 1980s.

Kavanaugh vehemently denied the allegations and was ultimately confirmed to the nation’s highest bench in a 50-48 vote.

During the confirmation process, Kavanaugh said he hired an all-women team — a first for the Supreme Court —before the sexual misconduct allegations came to light.

The four law clerks include Shannon Grammel, a graduate of Harvard University and Stanford University, Kim Jackson, a graduate of Yale Law School, Megan Lacy, a graduate of the University of Virginia Law School and Hillsdale College, and Sara Nommensen, a graduate of Harvard Law School.
