NEW YORK (Reuters) - Preet Bharara, the former U.S. Attorney in Manhattan who was fired this month by President Donald Trump, will join New York University's law school on April 1 as a distinguished scholar in residence, the school announced on Tuesday.

In a statement provided by the school, Bharara said he was honoured to join NYU, and welcomed the opportunity "to continue addressing the issues I so deeply care about - criminal and social justice, honest government, national security, civil rights, and corporate accountability, to name a few."

Bharara was fired by Trump on March 11 after refusing to step down. He had been among 46 U.S. attorneys who were told to submit their resignations a day earlier.
