Could you have passed Barack Obama’s law class at U. of C.?
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.
Obama was a well-liked lecturer at the Law School from 1992-2004 whose exams were at times as funny as they were mind-numbingly complex.
In student evaluations maintained by the university since Obama left when he was elected to the U.S. Senate, he was given near perfect marks by students for being an interesting teacher who was good at challenging students and addressing dissenting viewpoints constructively.
