Ex-US Attorney Barbara McQuade will teach law at Michigan

Former U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade will teach at University of Michigan law school.

The school said Tuesday that McQuade will teach criminal law, criminal procedure and national security law. She has undergraduate and law degrees from Michigan.

McQuade says helping today's students develop a deep understanding of the legal system "has never been more important."

She was chief federal prosecutor in eastern Michigan for seven years, after 12 years as an assistant U.S. attorney. The Trump administration last week told all U.S. attorneys appointed by President Barack Obama to step down.

In Grand Rapids, Patrick Miles Jr. resigned as U.S. attorney for western Michigan and the Upper Peninsula on Jan. 20.
