Beyond parody: Lerach plans to teach law at Irvine

by Walter Olson on April 14, 2010

Released from prison, the felonious class-actioneer plans to join Dean Erwin Chemerinsky’s left-leaning new University of California law school to lecture students on the topic of “Regulation of Free Market Capitalism — Why Have We Failed?”. He also apparently intends to claim the time spent in this propagandistic effort toward his community service obligation. In an interview with Diane Bell of the San Diego Union-Tribune, he says of his past legal practice: “I would not have done anything differently.” “I also intend to be active in progressive political activities probably with the Campaign for America’s Future,” he says.

He better careful, I hear that Attorney General Jerry Brown is interested in prosecuting University organizations that involve themselves in partisan politics.

He’ll leave enough money in his will to endow a chair there.
