Was Bernardine Dohrn the Mentor of Michelle Obama at Sidley Austin?

April 22, 2008

Bernardine Dohrn was at Sidley Austin a law firm in Chicago from

From 1984 to 1988, Dohrn was employed by the law firm Sidley Austin, although her criminal record has prevented her from being admitted to either the New York or Illinois bar.


Michelle Obama graduated from Harvard Law School in 1988.  But she likely also was a summer associate in 1987 and likely 1986.  Barack Obama was assigned to her in 1989 when he was a summer associate from Harvard Law School.


He entered Harvard Law School in 1988.[9] In

MIchelle’s Princeton thesis:


James Fulford quotes Politico

Michelle Obama’s senior year thesis at Princeton University, obtained exclusively from the campaign by Politico, shows a document written by a young woman grappling with a society in which a black Princeton alumnus might only be allowed to remain “on the periphery.” Read the full thesis here: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4.

Sidley Austin likely recognized this in Michelle even if she didn’t show them her Princeton thesis.  Who better at Sidley Austin to be mentor to the author of this Princeton thesis than Bernardine Dohrn who had been number 2 on the FBI most wanted list?

Barack Obama was assigned to Michelle Obama in summer 1989.  This may have reflected how few blacks there were at Sidley Austin, especially from Harvard Law School or the equivalent.  Dohrn got her J.D. from University of Chicago Law School.  Since she is a prof at Northwestern despite her background, we might infer she was very smart and understanding.  So she was the perfect person to be the mentor for Michelle Obama at Sidley Austin.

The above is speculation, hypotheses or opinion.  All statements should be restated as questions.  All other disclaimers apply.

[…] En el mismo bufete trabajó la notoria Bernadine Dohrn (1984-1988), antigua miembro del movimiento radical Weather Underground, grupo de extrema izquierda que los 70 en puso bombas y cometió atentados para protestar, entre otras cosas, contra la Guerra de Vietnam. Dohrn fue acusada y condenada por poner bombas, fue fugitiva perseguida por el FBI, y es la esposa de William Ayers, el que hemos citado de pasada antes. Parece que no coincidió con Barack Obama, pero sí con Michelle. Es otro de los posibles vínculos entre Ayers y Obama, si aceptamos la teoría según la cual Frank Marshall Davis (recordemos la infancia de Obama en Hawaii) era amigo del padre de Ayers, y éste le consiguió a Obama el trabajo e el bufete, y también según la cual Ayers y Obama se conocerían desde que Obama fue estudiante universitario en Columbia. Pero no es el más importante, y todas las teorías que he contado no están probadas. No caigamos en el rumor y la calumnia. […]
