Harvard Law School will be offering a unique course this spring; “understanding Obama,” reports The Daily Caller.

The reading group, taught by professor Charles Ogletree, will earn students one credit towards their 2013 spring term, and will focus on how race, religion, and politics have played a role in the development of President Barack Obama as a world leader, according to the Law School course catalog.

“We will explore his views as a biracial child, his time as a student at Harvard Law School, the successes and failures of his political campaigns, and the way religion and his views on faith nearly derailed his campaign. Finally, time will be spent analyzing the challenges he faces as president of the United States in establishing both his domestic and global policies,” the catalog reads.

Ogletree, a mentor for both President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, while the pair were law students, told The Daily Caller that the course will take an unprejudiced look at Obama’s presidency, examining both critical and positive issues that surround the Commander in Chief.

But not everyone believes the course won’t be biased.

“Everyone knows professor Ogletree is an uncritical admirer of the president,” a Harvard Law student told TheDC. “To me, this looks like course credit for participating in an Obama fan club.”

Obama graduated from Harvard Law School in 1991.
