After showing his students a film interview with a pimp, a controversial University of Connecticut School of Law professor will return in the spring to teach three courses, but not one on feminist legal theory. Robert L. Birmingham was asked to take a leave of absence after he used the film clip from a documentary on prostitution during a Remedies course and a later seminar. Birmingham's supporters say he often strays from conventional teaching to provoke conversation.
