Gulfport, Fla. – The Florida Supreme Court’s Commission on Professionalism awarded Stetson University College of Law professor Rebecca C. Morgan its annual Faculty Professionalism Award last week at a judicial luncheon in Orlando.

“Professor Morgan is the consummate professional, and through her work in the classroom and by example, has instilled the ideals of professionalism in countless people affiliated with the justice system,” said Stetson’s Dean Darby Dickerson, who nominated Morgan for the award.

Professor Morgan holds the Boston Asset Management Faculty Chair in Elder Law and directs Stetson’s Center for Excellence in Elder Law. A national leader in the field of elder law, Morgan has spearheaded unique partnerships with AARP, the Florida Attorney General’s Office and the legal community to increase public awareness of consumer fraud against senior citizens. She also received the 2003 Wm. Reece Smith Jr. Public Service Award from Stetson.

The award was presented by Justice Raoul Cantero on June 26 during the Florida Bar’s 2003 Annual Meeting at the Orlando World Center Marriott.
