Saturday, February 9, Prof. Howard Wasserman will speak at the First Amendment Lawyers Association Winter Meeting, discussing the 75th anniversary of West Virginia Board of Education v. Barnette. That historic decision was the subject of an FIU Law Review Symposium in October 2018.


Professor Wasserman joined FIU Law in 2003 and teaches civil procedure, evidence, federal courts, civil rights, and First Amendment; his scholarship focuses on the freedom of speech and on the role of procedure and jurisdiction in public-law and civil-rights litigation. He blogs at PrawfsBlawg and at Sports-Law Blog and is the Section Editor for the Courts Law Section of JOTWELL. Professor Wasserman is a loyal Chicago Cubs fan.
