Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., said in a statement that Doug Emhoff, the husband of Vice President-elect Harris, will begin teaching at the school’s law school next spring.
According to a report by Politico News Network on the 10th, the statement said that Emhoff will lecture on entertainment and media law. Emhoff confirmed the news and said: “I have always wanted to teach and serve the younger generation of lawyers.
Now, it’s really exciting that I can join Georgetown University. A transition team official said: “Emhof’s teaching status will be separated from the role of ‘Second Mr’.’. He will continue to work with the transition team and focus on supporting the government’s work.”
Emhoff was a well-known entertainment and media law lawyer and a partner of DLA Piper, Los Angeles. Emhoff has been on furlough since Harris joined the campaign in August, and he has said he will completely cut off contact with the company before inauguration day.
Earlier, Gill Biden, Biden’s wife, also said that she would continue to teach English at Northern Virginia Community College. This will be the first time that the spouses of the President and the Vice President of the United States have both full-time jobs.
Harris will become the first female vice president of the United States, and her husband Emhoff will also become the first “second gentleman” in American history.
