Doug Emhoff, the husband of Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, will be teaching at the Georgetown University’s law school in Washington, D.C., next semester, according to a press release from the university. He’ll serve as a “Distinguished Visitor from Practice” and a Distinguished Fellow of the Georgetown Law Institute.

“I’ve long wanted to teach and serve the next generation of young lawyers,” Emhoff said in a statement. “I couldn’t be more excited to join the Georgetown community.”

The course on entertainment and media law will be Emhoff’s first teaching gig, according to a transition official. Until recently, he was a prominent entertainment and media lawyer and partner at DLA Piper in Los Angeles. Since Harris joined the Democratic ticket in August, Emhoff has been on a leave of absence from the firm and has plans to completely cut ties before Inauguration Day.
