In the latest battle in what has become a full blown tit-for-tat fact check war, it turns out Obama really was a professor at the University of Chicago’s law school. The Clinton campaign had noted that he’s listed as a senior lecturer, not a professor. “There’s an important distinction in the academic world,” Phil Singer, a spokesman for the Clinton campaign told reporters yesterday on a conference call. Not so, says the
University of Illinois University of Chicago’s School of Law, which today posted this statement on their website. An excerpt:
Senior Lecturers are considered to be members of the Law School faculty and are regarded as professors, although not full-time or tenure-track.
