From NYU Law News:
NYU School of Law has announced that Preet Bharara will join the Law School as a distinguished scholar in residence on April 1, 2017. Bharara comes to NYU Law at the conclusion of his tenure as United States attorney for the Southern District of New York, one of the longest for anyone holding that position.
The school has not yet decided whether he will teach any classes.
You will recall that he was fired from his position as U.S. Attorney. He has stated that President Trump had previously assured him that he could continue in that position.
Three other (now-former) U.S. Attorneys also have chosen to enter the groves of legal academe:
Barbara McQuade: University of Michigan
David Hickton: Pitt
Paul Fishman: Seton Hall
