Jonathan Rose is Professor of Law and Willard H.

He has received several awards for outstanding teaching. He has been a professor at the College since 1968 and was Associate Dean from 1987-90. He graduated with honors from the University of Pennsylvania in 1960, and from the University of Minnesota Law School magna cum laude in 1963, where he was Senior Editor of the Minnesota Law Review. Professor Rose is the author of numerous articles, reports and book reviews in the areas of legal history, antitrust, occupational and economic regulation and legal ethics. He is an affiliate of the College of Law's Center for the Study of Law, Science, & Technology and ASU Lincoln Center for Applied Ethics.

After spending most of his career focusing on antitrust, regulation, and legal ethics, he has changed direction. His current primary scholarly interests involve medieval and early modern English legal history and his research is focused on the history, regulation, and functioning of the legal profession and the operation of the legal system in medieval and early modern England. He has presented papers on these topics at numerous conferences and law school workshops. He recently published a book, "Maintenance in Medieval England" (Cambridge University Press, 2017)..
