Public calendars from the University of Notre Dame's law school show at least seven additional talks not listed on Judge Amy Coney Barrett's Senate paperwork, including one with the law school's anti-abortion group, according to a CNN KFile review.

(CNN)Public calendars from the University of Notre Dame's law school show at least seven additional talks not listed on Judge Amy Coney Barrett's Senate paperwork, including one with the law school's anti-abortion group, according to a CNN KFile review.

The calendars list her as participating in a panel on religion in the public square, a speech to a student religious society, a talk with the law school's anti-abortion group, a roundtable on the Constitution, a faculty colloquium, a student scholarship symposium and an event sponsored by Notre Dame's Women's Legal Forum.

All of Barrett's events were listed on public calendars from Notre Dame, which CNN's KFile accessed on the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine and on Notre Dame's website.

Barrett is required to disclose to the Senate Judiciary Committee all public talks she has given in her professional career, according to a committee staffer.

Barrett has already faced questions over initially failing to disclose some talks she gave while a law professor at Notre Dame.

CNN's KFile reported last week that Barrett initially did not disclose two talks she gave in 2013 hosted by two anti-abortion student groups on paperwork provided to the Senate.

Barrett's initial failure to disclose those two events, and subsequent talks found by CNN's KFile, raise questions about whether the questionnaire is a complete overview of her talks as a law professor and whether she could face any consequences from the committee.

CNN's KFile could not independently confirm Barrett's participation in the events, only that they were listed on Notre Dame's public calendars.

Following CNN's reporting last week, and an inquiry to the White House on a 2013 "right to life" ad she signed in a Notre Dame newspaper, Barrett sent a letter detailing the talks and the ad to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

In April 2004, Barrett was scheduled to give a two-hour talk called "Law and. . . " The description, according to the calendar, was "Liberally Clothing the Naked Public Square," a reference to religion in the public square.
