Law professor planning to leave University to serve as U.S. Attorney for Kansas
"Stephen McAllister will take a leave of absence if confirmed as the next U.S. Attorney for Kansas, however, he said he plans on returning to the University at the end of his term.
McAllister, a distinguished professor at the University’s law school, was nominated to serve as the United States Attorney for the District of Kansas by President Donald Trump on Sept. 8.
If confirmed by the U.S. Senate, McAllister will begin his four-year term as U.S. Attorney for Kansas. McAllister would replace Tom Beall as the chief federal law enforcement officer in Kansas."
