After beginning his legal training at George Mason University, Baker transferred to the University of Chicago. After law school and graduate school, Baker clerked for Judge E. Grady Jolly of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. He was most recently on the faculty at the University of North Carolina, where he was Professor of Law and Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs. He teaches law and economics, corporate finance, contracts, torts, property, and intellectual property.
Baker's research interests lie at the intersection of law, economics, and game theory.
Baker's co-written work has appeared in the Journal of Law and Economics, the Journal of Law, Economics and Organization and the law reviews at Vanderbilt, Boston University, Florida State, and George Washington.
