Elizabeth Warren Returning to Harvard Law School

Elizabeth Warren, adviser to Secretary of the Treasury Timothy Geithner, has announced that she is returning to her post as the Leo Gottlieb Professor at Harvard Law School. Warren was the first to propose the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and President Obama brought her to Washington last fall to oversee the creation of the new agency, which was authorized in the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.

Some Democrats in Massachusetts are trying to convince Professor Warren to challenge GOP U.S. Senator Scott Brown when he stands for reelection in 2012.

Professor Warren is a graduate of the University of Houston and the Rutgers University School of Law.
