Professor Specter

    The University of Pennsylvania says Arlen Specter, who wrapped up 30 years as a U.S. senator, will teach at its law school this fall.

    He’ll teach something he knows a little bit about: the relationship between Congress and the U.S. Supreme Court.

    Specter graduated from Penn and earned a law degree at Yale University. He began his long stretch of public service as an assistant city district attorney in Philadelphia in 1959 – and now it’s back to school.
