It has been announced that Alberto Gonzales, former U.S. attorney general in President George W. Bush’s administration, has been named dean of Belmont University’s nearly 3-year-old law school. Gonzales, U.S. attorney general from 2005 to 2007, joined Belmont in 2012. He has taught constitutional law courses while also serving as counsel at Nashville’s Waller law firm. His appointment as dean, effective June 1, comes after founding dean Jeff Kinsler opted to return to a full-time faculty position.
