Malloy to teach at Boston College Law School

HARTFORD — Governor Dannel P. Malloy has accepted a teaching position at the Boston College Law School.

The school says the Democrat, who will leave office in January after two terms as Connecticut’s governor, will teach in the spring as its Rappaport Distinguished Visiting Professor.

The school says Malloy will offer a seminar and participate in lectures and panel discussions throughout the semester on issues dealing with policy-making.

Malloy received both a bachelor’s degree and a law degree from Boston College.

Malloy told the law school’s magazine that he appreciates being in a position to help students bridge the gap between the study of law and the practice of government.

Malloy, who also served as mayor of Stamford, Connecticut, from 1995 to 2009, was the law school’s commencement speaker in 2014.
