Criminal Court judge joins NSL faculty

’79 grad will teach fourth-year students

Criminal Court Judge Mark Fishburn has joined the faculty of the Nashville School of Law and will teach his first group of fourth-year students in February.

Fishburn has been a Criminal Court judge since 2003 and before that was General Sessions Court judge for three years. Prior taking a seat on the bench, he worked in private practice for 18 years, specializing in criminal law, personal injury and worker’s compensation cases. Fishburn, a 1979 graduate of NSL, will teach Moot Court II.

“I am delighted to become part of the faculty of the school that launched my successful law career,” said Judge Fishburn. “I hope to instill the same drive and passion for the law in my students as my instructors did in me more than 30 years ago.”
