Argentina’s new president, Alberto Fernandez, returned to his duties as law professor, monitoring students as they took their final exams.
Sworn into office on Tuesday, Fernandez re-joined his former students at the University of Buenos Aires, where he taught law.

Fernandez also posted a photo showing him listening to one of the students.
No quise dejar de venir hoy a la Facultad de Derecho de la UBA a tomar exámenes finales a mis alumnos y alumnas de Derecho Penal.
La educación pública gratuita es uno de los valores más importantes que tenemos. Vamos a defenderla con el ejemplo y con los recursos que merece.
“He’s no longer a candidate for president, he is the president of the nation. It’s historical. This will never happen to me again in my life,” one of his students told Reuters.
A group photo was taken after all the exams were handed in.
