THE HENRY LATIMER CENTER FOR PROFESSIONALISM
Center for Professionalism Seal


2014-16 Professionalism Handbook

Professionalism is the pursuit and practice of the highest ideals and tenets of the legal profession. It embraces far more than simply complying with the minimal standards of professional conduct. The essential ingredients of professionalism are character, competence, civility, and commitment.


These materials are intended for use as an informational source for use by professional responsibility students at the law schools of Florida. Although these are substantially complete, periodic changes are made to the rules which are not immediately reflected on this Henry Latimer Center for Professionalism Web site. Applicability to a particular situation depends upon an investigation of the specific facts and an exhaustive study of the current relevant rules. Accordingly any of these Rules, Ideals or Guidelines should be verified to be the current edition from other sources before being cited as authority.
