DETROIT (AP) – Former U.S. Sen. Carl Levin will chair a new center named after him at the Wayne State University Law School in Detroit.
The university announced the formation of the Levin Center at Wayne Law on Tuesday. Levin, whose 36 years in the Senate ended in January, will also join the faculty at Wayne Law and co-teach his first class this fall on tax policy.
School officials say the center will have an initial focus on the legislative process and oversight authority. The center will host workshops for public officials in addition to coursework and research functions.
In the Senate, Levin served as the chairman of the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations. Probes included ones on former energy firm Enron and the 2008 financial crisis.
