Bork to Join U. of Richmond Law School
Feb. 13, 2004

Richmond, Va. (AP) -  Former federal appeals judge and acting attorney general Robert Bork will join the University of Richmond law school faculty in the fall.

Bork's title will be distinguished professor of American law and culture.

Law school Dean Rodney Smolla calls Bork "one of the most interesting legal intellectuals of modern times," and says he's "provocative." Smolla also points out that Bork has argued 41 cases in the U.S. Supreme Court.

Bork was an unsuccessful nominee to serve on the nation's highest court.

Bork, who's 76, will commute from his home in northern Virginia and teach one class each week.

In the fall, the course will be constitutional law theory for law students and undergraduates.
