PROFESSIONAL ETHICS OF THE FLORIDA BAR

OPINION 62-17
August 21, 1962

It is ethical for a lawyer to take the Florida Real Estate Commission examination for real estate brokers to hold the license as a non-active broker for the purpose of teaching real estate law in a registered school.

Canon: 27

Chairman Holcomb stated the opinion of the committee:

The Committee on Professional Ethics has considered a request from a member of The Florida Bar for information as to whether it is ethical for a lawyer to take the Florida Real Estate Commission examination for real estate brokers, it being intended for use in obtaining a license to teach real estate law in a registered school whose function is to prepare applicants for real estate licenses.

We can find no objection to his taking this examination to hold a license as a non-active broker and to teach real estate law.
