He has a B.A. degree from the Florida State University and a J.D. degree from the Stetson University College of Law, along with the above mentioned degrees.

After leaving the Attorney General's office, Jacob worked as a private lawyer for the firm of Holland, Bevis & Smith, now Holland & Knight, in Bartow and Lakeland, Florida. He, at that time, completed his LL.M. degree at Northwestern University, and joined the faculty of Emory University School of Law, where he established the Legal Assistance for Inmates Program at the Atlanta Penitentiary.

In 1969, Jacob was appointed, by the Supreme Court, as counsel for petitioner in Kaufman v. United States case. Later, while at the Harvard Law School, he served as a Research Associate in the Center for Criminal Justice, assisted in the establishment of the Harvard Prison Legal Assistance Project, and supervised the work of law students in the defense of criminal cases and in the representation of indigents in civil matters in the Community Legal Assistance Office, Cambridge, Massachusetts. He received the S.J.D. from the Harvard Law School.

Jacob subsequently served as Professor and Director of Clinical Programs at The Ohio State University College of Law, as Dean and Professor of the Mercer University School of Law and as Vice President of Stetson University and Dean of Stetson College of Law from 1981 through 1994. He is an author and co-author of articles on Criminal Law and Procedure, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, and the Administrative Law of Corrections. While on sabbatical leave during 1994-95, he took courses in the LL.M. program in Taxation at the University of Florida College of Law, and received that LL.M. in 1995. He currently teaches constitutional law, criminal procedure, criminal law and administrative law courses at the Stetson University College of Law.
