Former United States Attorney Jim Letten’s next job will be a newly created position as assistant dean for experimental learning at the Tulane University Law School.

According to a written announcement, Letten will focus on expanding practical skills training for law school students.  He will also work to line up lawyers and their firms, especially among alumni, to provide simulation courses and opportunities for supervised practical experience.

Letten worked as U.S. Attorney in New Orleans for 11 years and led a wide-spread effort to prosecute political corruption cases.  Prior to becoming U.S. Attorney, he led the successful federal prosecution of former Governor Edwin Edwards as lead attorney in the case.

In December, Letten resigned in the wake of a blogging scandal that accused two of his prosecutors of posting anonymous online comments about cases the office was handling.

He is expected to begin is job at Tulane later this month.
