Professor H. Scott Fingerhut has been appointed by the president of The Florida Bar to two committees – the Bar’s Professional Ethics Committee and the Bar’s Code and Rules of Evidence Committee.

The Professional Ethics Committee is charged with the duty of answering ethics inquiries from members of the Bar, as well as reviewing informal advisory opinions issued by the Bar’s ethics department attorneys.  In addition, the committee publishes formal advisory opinions to guide bar members in interpreting and applying the ethics rules.

The responsibility of the Code and Rules of Evidence Committee is to consider and propose new rules of evidence and procedure, civil and criminal, as well as suggest changes to existing evidentiary rules.

“I appreciate very much Bar President Foster-Morales’ call to serve and humbled by the faith she has placed in me to help make real the potentiality of better lawyering and the American promise of equal justice under law,” Professor Fingerhut said.  “Each of these committee assignments dovetail well to foster — for our students, legal community, and the people and causes we champion — our special FIU Trial Advocacy Program brand of passionate principled advocacy.”

Professor Fingerhut is the Assistant Director of the Trial Advocacy Program.  He teaches Trial Advocacy, Pretrial Practice, Criminal Procedure, and coaches the Trial Team.  He is also a Fellow in the FIU Honors College, where he serves as faculty advisor to PATH, the pre-law honors organization, as well as teaches two upper division seminars, Observing Ourselves and The Gathering.
