Alberto Gonzales has said that “I look forward to being a part of this.” During a speech on Wednesday Gonzales noted the enthusiastic students, “but most of all I look forward to continuing to interact with the students as we all work together collectively to make Belmont the greatest law school that it can be,” he said according to The Tennessean.

The nation’s first Hispanic attorney general, Alberto Gonzales according to the Star Tribune, resigned after a controversy over the politically motivated firings of nine U.S. attorneys and amid an uproar over the allegations of the torture of terrorism suspects.

“I am honored by this opportunity and grateful for the support of President Fisher and Dr. Burns. I look forward to working with the outstanding faculty, staff and students at Belmont College of Law,” Alberto Gonzales said in a statement, according to News Channel 5.
