Message from the Dean

Welcome to Belmont University College of Law.  There are many good law schools, so why should you choose Belmont Law?  At Belmont, we teach law the way it needs to be taught – from a twenty-first century perspective.  Law firms expect new lawyers to “hit the ground running.”  Consequently, our faculty of experienced teachers, scholars, and practicing attorneys integrate traditional legal analysis and practical legal skills, with the goal of graduating practice-ready attorneys for today’s global legal market.



At Belmont Law, we continue many of the features that have made Belmont University famous:  small classes, academically challenging curriculum, student-centered instruction, community service, and global perspective.  We incorporate ethics, professionalism, and integrity into everything we do.  We believe law students become professionals on the day they enter law school and not on the day they graduate.



We hope you’ll take the opportunity to review our website to learn more.  We also invite you to visit us here in Nashville.  I would be delighted to sit down with you personally to explore how our J.D. program could assist you in becoming a first-rate attorney.



Best Wishes,



Jeffrey S. Kinsler, J.D., LL.M.

Dean, College of Law
