The Florida Bar honored Stetson University College of Law professor Charles H. Rose III, director of the Center for Excellence in Advocacy, with the Law Faculty Professionalism Award at its annual convention in Boca Raton, Fla., June 18-21. Rose is the third Stetson Law professor to be honored with the award in the past five years.

“The award is presented to a faculty member who, through teaching, scholarship and service, represents the highest standard of professionalism,” said Carl Zahner, director of The Florida Bar’s Henry Latimer Center for Professionalism. The Henry Latimer Center works to promote professionalism in law schools, the judiciary and The Florida Bar membership.

The Latimer Center works with The Florida Bar’s Standing Committee on Professionalism to select award recipients.

Stetson Law professor Roberta Flowers received the award in 2005 and professor Rebecca Morgan received it in 2003. In addition, Stetson’s Centers for Excellence in Advocacy and Elder Law jointly received the Professionalism Award in 2005 for their Elder Law Ethics Video Project.

Stetson is home to Centers for Excellence in Advocacy, Elder Law, Higher Education Law and Policy and International Law, as well as the Institute for Biodiversity Law and Policy, Institute for Caribbean Law and Policy, and the National Clearinghouse for Science, Technology and the Law.
