Introducing Guest Blogger Howard Wasserman

I am thrilled to introduce Professor Howard M. Wasserman as a guest blogger this month.  Professor Wasserman is a Professor of Law at the FIU College of Law. He graduated magna cum laude from the Northwestern University School of Law, where he was an associate articles editor of the Law Review and was named to the Order of the Coif.  Following law school, he clerked for Chief Judge James T. Giles of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and Judge Jane R. Roth of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. He also has been a visiting professor at Saint Louis University School of Law and Florida State University College of Law. Professor Wasserman teaches civil procedure, evidence, federal courts, civil rights, and First Amendment. 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.

Professor Wasserman has lots of fascinating recent work, which I highly recommend, including:

    Are you considering Howard for a lateral appointment from Prawfs? Or does he just have too much free time these days?
