Former U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade will start teaching at the University of Michigan Law School in just under a couple of months.

University officials confirm she will start on May 1.

McQuade will teach national security, criminal law, and criminal procedure. 

“I am honored to return to Michigan Law School to teach the next generation of law students at a critical moment in our nation’s history. Michigan’s unique learning environment opened a new world of ideas for me when I was a student there, and I am thrilled to join its great faculty,” said U.S. Attorney McQuade in a statement. “Helping students to develop a deep understanding of our laws, courts and legal system has never been more important.”

McQuade was sworn in as U.S. Attorney on January 4, 2010. She left the position this week after President Donald Trump requested her resignation.
