The University of Virginia (UVA) School of Law announced Wednesday that former special counsel Robert Mueller will be teaching his investigation of alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election to its law students this fall.
Mueller will facilitate “The Mueller Report and the Role of the Special Counsel” alongside former deputy special counsel Aaron Zebley, former senior counsel Jim Quarles, and former senior assistant special counsel Andrew Goldstein.
The class will focus on key decisions made during the investigation and other important factors.
“The course will start chronologically with the launch of the investigation, including Mueller’s appointment as special counsel. Other sessions will focus on navigating the relationship with the Justice Department and Congress, investigative actions relating to the White House and the importance of the Roger Stone prosecution,” the school stated in a press release.
The former Federal Bureau of Investigation director wrapped up the two-year investigation in March 2019, submitting a 448-page report that suggested instances of collusion or attempted collusion with Russia in 2016.
Mueller discovered foreign efforts meant to benefit the Trump campaign but could not prove that Donald Trump or his campaign officials knew of or took part in any criminal offenses. However, he filed charges against 34 people, including Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort, Roger Stone, Rick Gates, and three Russian companies.
CNN also reported that UVA may provide Mueller with an additional forum to discuss the pardons that Trump awarded to Stone, Manafort, and Flynn. For someone who has been notoriously tight-lipped about the whole situation, Mueller expressed his excitement to teach.
“I was fortunate to attend UVA Law School after the Marine Corps, and I’m fortunate to be returning there now. I look forward to engaging with the students this fall,” he said in a news release.
