Joe Fore joined the faculty in 2014 as a co-director of the Law School’s Legal Research and Writing Program.
Prior to joining the Law School faculty, Fore was an associate with BakerHostetler, practicing commercial litigation in Washington, D.C. and Orlando, Florida. He litigated cases in a wide range of substantive areas — including real estate matters, contract disputes, election law and class actions — at both the trial and appellate levels. Fore also served as an adjunct professor at Barry University’s Dwayne O. Andreas School of Law in Orlando, where he taught a seminar course in advanced oral advocacy skills.
Fore graduated from Duke University, majoring in biology and public policy studies. He received his J.D. from the Law School, where he was a notes editor for the Virginia Law Review and a semifinalist in the William Minor Lile Moot Court Competition. During law school, Fore also interned for U.S. District Court Judge John Antoon II of the Middle District of Florida and served as a legal fellow in the Counsel’s Office for the Governor of Virginia. In recognition of his academic and extracurricular achievement, Fore was inducted into the Raven Society, the oldest honor society at the University of Virginia.
