Under the Dome

Duke law prof confirmed to Justice Dept. post

Duke law Professor Christopher Schroeder is the new assistant attorney general for the U.S. Justice Department's Office of Legal Policy.

The Senate confirmed Schroeder, 72 to 24, on Wednesday and Attorney General Eric Holder welcomed him back to the department.

"The Office of Legal Policy serves a crucial role at the department in coordinating some of our most important projects and initiatives," Holder said in a prepared statement.

Schroeder, who most recently headed Duke's program in public law, served as acting assistant attorney general for the Office of Legal Counsel during the Clinton administration. He also served as chief counsel to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

One of those 24

"no" votes was our very own Richard Burr. For all the Duke alum and fans reading this, you know what to do.
