Rolando is a partner at the law firm of Shutts & Bowen, LLP in Miami, where practices in the areas of real estate, construction and community associations. She is currently the chair of the 10,000-plus-member Real Property, Probate and Trust Law Section of The Florida Bar and has been a member of the Florida State University Board of Trustees since 2010.

"Peggy is a nationally recognized expert in real-estate law and finance," said Dean Don Weidner, "yet she manages to donate incredible amounts of time to Florida State University."

Immediately following the ceremony, the law school will host a reception for graduates, their families and their friends on the College of Law green
