NASHVILLE, Tenn. ― Former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales has been named dean of Belmont University’s College of Law.

Gonzales joined the school in 2012 and has taught several law courses. He has also worked for a private law firm in Nashville. He plans to resign that position to focus full-time on the law school, where he will be responsible for the college’s finances, administration, and planning and development.

Gonzales became the nation’s first Hispanic attorney general and held that post from 2005 to 2007 under President George W. Bush. He resigned after a controversy over the politically motivated firings of nine U.S. attorneys and amid an uproar over allegations of torture of terrorism suspects.

Before serving as attorney general, Gonzales was Bush’s White House legal counsel.
