Rick has officially been appointed to teach Copyright Law at Vanderbilt University Law School this fall. It’s not a permanent position; Rick’s just filling in until the school can find a permanent replacement. Still, as many of you know, Rick used to teach literature and “Western Civilization” in a previous career, so he’s pretty excited to be combining two of his favorite things, and at his old law school no less! Vanderbilt’s online catalog hasn’t yet been updated for the 2012/2013 school year, so you’ll have to take Rick’s word for it for now. He assures us that he has an actual letter of appointment at home.

Normally, at this point, we’d invite you to attend, but the thing about law school is that you normally need to be paying tuition to attend class…

Rick Sanders

Rick is the litigation half of Aaron & Sanders, PLLC; and, from 2012 to 2014, an adjunct professor at Vanderbilt University Law School, where he was teaching Copyright Law. Vandy also happens to be where he got his law degree in 2000. After graduation, he practiced at a major intellectual-property law firm in Silicon Valley for a few years. He returned to Nashville in 2004, where he worked for a large Nashville firm, practicing as much intellectual-property law as he could, but also a lot of commercial law. He left that firm in 2011 to start Aaron & Sanders with Tara Aaron, so he could practice intellectual-property law full time and work with start-ups and other non-institutional clients.
