Gov. Dannel P. Malloy will be returning to college after his gubernatorial term ends as a visiting professor at Boston College Law School.
Malloy, a Democrat, has served as governor since 2011. He announced in April 2017 that he would not seek a third term, setting up the Nov. 6 election between Democrat Ned Lamont and Republican Bob Stefanowski.
The governor’s office released a statement saying that Malloy, a Boston College graduate, accepted the Rappaport Professorship and will start teaching at the law school next spring.
BC Law, the law school's magazine, published this story on Malloy, citing his fight for new gun regulations after the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown and his defense of Syrian refugees that earned him the 2016 John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award.
Malloy will teach a seminar and take part in lectures as well as panel discussions throughout the spring 2019 semester, according to BC Law.
