Professor Murray teaches business law, negotiations, and mediation at Belmont.  His research areas include alternative dispute resolution, corporate governance, mergers & acquisitions, and social enterprise law.

Professor Murray received his B.A. in Business Administration from Rhodes College where he concentrated his studies in Finance and International Business.  He received his J.D., on scholarship, from Georgia State University College of Law where he was elected to the editorial board of the school’s main law review, graduated second in his class, was a Bleckley Inn of Court Pupil, and received “high distinction” for his pro bono work.  Professor Murray received a certificate in International Commercial Arbitration from Johannes Kepler Universität in Linz, Austria where he received a CALI Award for outstanding academic performance.

Before entering academia, Professor Murray practiced law as a member of King & Spalding’s M&A/Corporate team in Atlanta, GA, where he worked on domestic and international transactions, mediated landlord-tenant cases pro bono, and engaged in a general corporate practice. Professor Murray left King & Spalding to clerk for former-Vice Chancellor Stephen P. Lamb on the Delaware Court of Chancery.  Following his clerkship, Professor Murray was recruited to Weil, Gotshal & Manges in New York City, NY where he practiced as part of the firm’s Corporate Governance & Securities Litigation group.

Prior to joining Belmont University’s faculty, Professor Murray taught as a Visiting Assistant Professor at Georgia State University College of Law and as an Assistant Professor at Regent University School of Law.  Professor Murray has taught, worked, and studied in over a dozen countries. Professor Murray and his wife (Katie) have one son (David, born in April 2013) and are active members of Christ Presbyterian Church in Nashville.
