Professor Thomas E. Baker has coauthored another constitutional law book: First Amendment Law: Freedom of Expression & Freedom of Religion, Third Edition.

Baker explained, “I am proud to have collaborated with two leading First Amendment scholars, Arthur Hellman at Pittsburgh and William Araiza at Brooklyn. Our casebook is one of the most adopted texts for this challenging subject. It includes the latest Supreme Court cases and numerous problems that make it eminently teachable – very student friendly. I enjoy using it in my own First Amendment course because my students get a lot out of it.”

Baker is a member of FIU Law’s Founding Faculty and since that time has published eight books, including the popular Nutshell on constitutional law, the Skills and Values Series text on constitutional law, and a casebook on appellate courts. He has also published numerous casebook supplements, teaching manuals, journal articles, and blog postings. Dean Acosta observed, “Professor Baker is a teachers’ teacher. His teaching materials are challenging yet accessible and his books receive consistently high reviews from students and professors at law schools across the country.”

Professor Baker regularly teaches the 1L course in Constitutional Law and the advanced elective course on the First Amendment.
