HYDE PARK — President Barack Obama is returning to the University of Chicago’s Law School, where he was once a lecturer, on Thursday, and it’s time to study up just in case there’s a pop quiz.

Obama will be at the Law School on Thursday morning to talk about the U.S. Supreme Court and his pick of Merrick Garland to fill the vacancy left by Justice Antonin Scalia.
