“Beginning in January 2021, former director of the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation James B. Comey will be appointed senior research scholar at Columbia Law School and distinguished fellow of the Reuben Mark Initiative for Organizational Character and Leadership,” the school has announced.
Comey has been selected as one of two “Leaders in Residence,” and will be teaching a new seminar called “Lawyers and Leaders.”
He appears to be excited.
