Students win Florida Bar’s professionalism video contest for the second year in a row

Stetson University College of Law students won the 2016 Law Student Professionalism YouTube Contest for their training and educational video depicting professional conduct for lawyers. It is the second year in a row that Stetson students have won the Florida Bar contest.

The video, “Legal Ethics Play of the Day,” features Stetson law students Dan Kavanaugh and Shaheen Nouri as television sportscasters reviewing a play-by-play of ethics scenarios acted by students Colby Connell, Patrick Iyampillai and Natalie Yello.

The Florida Bar’s Henry Latimer Center for Professionalism and Standing Committee on Professionalism selected the winners, who will receive their award on June 16 during the Stetson University College of Law Alumni Reception at the Florida Bar’s Annual Convention in Orlando.

The contest was designed to promote professionalism among law students as an integral part of a legal career.
