In the College of Law’s 45-year history, only one professor has a room dedicated to his passion, English Legal History, in the basement of the Ross-Blakley Law Library and is credited with construction of the “fire escape” on the north side of the library. Only one has delivered lectures from Kalamazoo to Oxford and Cambridge and knows both Medieval Latin and Law French.
Just one has his own law school bobblehead: Professor Jonathan Rose.
Rose, who joined the faculty at the behest of founding Dean Willard H. Pedrick, and was a driving force behind the design and construction of the architectural wonder that is the law library, will retire this spring. He has been at the College of Law for 44 years and plans to travel and spend more time on his research and scholarship, as well as teach part-time.
