Next summer, U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. will join the faculty of William Mitchell College of Law - for five weeks only - to teach at its summer program in London.

The law school, based in St. Paul, announced Wednesday that Roberts will teach a course next July called "The United States Supreme Court in Historical Perspective."

"This is a remarkable, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for our students to learn from one of our country's preeminent jurists," said Eric Janus, the president and dean of the law school, in a statement released Wednesday.

William Mitchell sponsors a five-week study abroad program in London that's open to law students across the United States.
