Prof. Bauries graduated first in his law school class at the University of Florida, where he was the Senior Galleys Editor of the Florida Law Review. Immediately after law school, Prof. Bauries clerked for the Honorable Emmett Ripley Cox of the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. While attending law school, Prof. Bauries pursued a Ph.D. in Educational Administration and Policy and taught undergraduates in the University of Florida College of Education.

In 2009, Prof. Bauries successfully defended his doctoral dissertation, Judicial Review and the Separation of Powers in State Constitutional Litigation Challenging the Adequacy of Education Spending: Complementary Analyses and a Proposed Adjudicatory Model. Based on this work, the Education Law Association selected Prof. Bauries as the recipient of the Joseph C. Beckham Dissertation of the Year Award for 2009.

Prior to entering legal studies, Prof. Bauries taught English for several years at the secondary school level in both public and private schools in central Florida. He also served as a school district grant funds administrator and staff developer, designing and providing training to in-service teachers and principals in curriculum, assessment techniques, and leadership.
