Alberto Gonzales To Become New Belmont Law Dean

Alberto Gonzales has been named the new dean of Belmont University's College of Law.  He is currently on the Belmont law school faculty, and his appointment is effective June 1, 2014.

The Tennessean story is here.

While Alberto Gonzales is certainly a controversial figure in some circles, I believe that people should be given multiple chances in life.  He brings a wealth of high level experience to his new position, including:

  • Partner at Vinson & Elkins, 
  • Justice on the Texas Supreme Court,
  • Texas Secretary of State,
  • General Counsel to the Governor of Texas,
  • Counsel to the President of the United States,
  • 80th Attorney General of the United States, and
  • Visiting Professor at Texas Tech University

My office is across campus at Belmont University's business school, but I will teach Business Associations in the law school this fall (in addition to my courses in the business school), and I look forward to interacting with our new law school dean.
