BIOGRAPHY

Professor Murray teaches business law and alternative dispute resolution courses. Currently, his research focuses on corporate governance and social enterprise law issues.

Professor Murray received his B.A. in Business Administration from Rhodes College where he concentrated his studies in Finance and International Business, while also earning four varsity letters in football. 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.

Before entering academia, Professor Murray clerked on the Delaware Court of Chancery and practiced corporate law at two large law firms with international presence: King & Spalding (Atlanta, GA) and Weil, Gotshal & Manges (New York, NY). 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 and his wife (Katie) are active members of Christ Presbyterian Church in Nashville.
