Specter to Teach at University of Pa. Law School

Tuesday, 04 January 2011 02:27 PM

Former U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter will teach at the University of Pennsylvania Law School starting in the next academic year.

Specter will teach a course on the relationship between Congress and the U.S. Supreme Court, focusing on separation of powers and the confirmation process, the school in Philadelphia said today in a statement. He will be an adjunct faculty member.

Specter, 80, earned an undergraduate degree at the university in 1951 and a law degree from Yale University in New Haven, Conn., according to the statement. He was elected to the Senate from Pennsylvania in 1980 and served for five terms before losing a Democratic primary bid in May. The senator, who had served on the Senate’s Judiciary Committee since 1981, was a Republican until switching his party affiliation in 2009.

“Arlen’s knowledge of the inner workings of the government and lawmaking is second to none,” said Michael A. Fitts, the law school’s dean. “The insight he brings from his career in public service, particularly as a leader on judicial issues, will be invaluable.”
