Florida Constitutional Law: Cases and Materials, a casebook used in Florida law schools since 1992, is now in its sixth edition. Although this book is designed to serve as an introduction of the Florida Constitution to the law student, it is widely used by practitioners and judges and has been admitted as a learned treatise on the subject of Florida Constitutional Law. The authors have added explanatory commentary to make this edition more user friendly.

The book includes the functions of a state constitution and how the Florida constitution is amended; separation of power issues; the major constitutional limits on legislative power; the constitutional jurisdiction of Florida courts, as well as the separation of powers limits on the courts that resemble the Article III limits on federal judicial power; units of local government and their relationship to the state and each other; the major constitutional limitations on taxation and borrowing; a selected review of various provisions of the Declaration of Rights, including Florida's privacy guarantee (which is far more extensive than privacy under the United States Constitution); and Florida's homestead provision.
