Casey Anthony: FAMU Hires Jose Baez To Teach Law Students

January 23, 2009

According to WFTV, Jose Baez has been hired by FAMU law school to teach up-and-coming lawyers.

For those of you who do not like Mr. Baez, just imagine what he will be teaching his new students? Thoughts?

From WFTV:

Baez is not teaching freshmen, he’s teaching upper-level classes how to get ready for trial.

Jose Baez passed the bar exam just three years ago. He has already confused jurisdiction and botched a motion in the Casey Anthony case. Now, he’s teaching law students at FAMU.

“How’s it going so far?” WFTV reporter Sean Lavin asked FAMU College of Law Dean Leroy Pernell.

“I don’t know yet. We’ve only been in session since here for a couple weeks at best,” he said.

Baez is also under Florida Bar investigation over allegations he spread false statements about the prosecutors.

“If he’s being investigated by the Bar, there’s a reason why, and they’re supposed to be setting examples for us,” FAMU law student Chris Hancock said.The law school’s dean did not even know about the Bar investigation until Eyewitness News told him.

“Are you guys going to stay on top of it and see how it comes out and review it?” Lavin asked Pernell.

“Well, I think with any teacher or instructor, if there are matters that occur that would interfere with experience of students in course, we’ll monitor that and take appropriate steps,” he said.

Pernell said he will take no action until the investigation is over. That means Baez will keep teaching at FAMU and will earn $4,500 per semester.

Even though students were told not to talk to Eyewitness News, several said Baez has hired FAMU students to help him work on the Anthony case outside of the classroom.Eyewitness News was unable to reach Baez for comment.
