Republican Ron Johnson has been sworn in as Wisconsin's newest U.S. Senator. The man Johnson succeeded on Capitol Hill, Democrat Russ Feingold, will move on to teach a law class and write a book.

Marquette University in Milwaukee says Feingold will be a visiting professor at the MU Law School, at least for this spring, teaching a course called "Current Legal Issues: The U.S. Senate."

Marquette Law School Dean Joseph Kearney says he expects Feingold to lecture about several topics. Kearney says he reached out to Feingold after the election, and offered him the work. Feingold is an attorney and practiced law for six years before serving in the U.S. Senate, but has not taught law students before.

The former senator says he's also writing a book about national and international events of the last decade. Feingold won't rule out another run for political office.
