Publisher Comments:

"Just as academia benefits from the understanding and respect of the legal community, so law benefits from the understanding and respect of academia."

—William A. Kaplin and Barbara A. Lee

Based on the fourth edition of The Law of Higher Education—the indispensable guide to law that bears on the provision of higher education—this Student Version provides an up-to-date reference and guide for coursework in higher education law. It also provides a guide for programs that help prepare higher education administrators for leadership roles.

This important reference is organized into five main parts: Perspectives and Foundations; The College and Its Governing Board and Staff; The College and Its Faculty; The College and Its Students; and The College and the Outside World. Each part includes the sections of the full fourth edition that most relate to student interests and are most suitable for classroom instruction, for example:

  • The evolution and reach of higher education law
  • The governance of higher education

  • Legal planning and dispute resolution

  • The interrelationships between law and policy

  • The college and its employees

  • Faculty employment and tenure

  • Academic freedom

  • Campus issues: student safety, racial and sexual harassment, affirmative action, computer networks, services for international students

  • Student misconduct

  • Freedom of speech and hate speech

  • Student rights, responsibilities, and activities fees

  • Athletics and Title IX

  • Copyright

In addition, the book includes a general introduction to the study of higher education law, a glossary of key legal terms, and two appendices for non-law students on the American court system and on how to read court opinions. Each chapter is introduced with an overview of key terms and ideas the students will encounter.

The authors will keep the book up-to-date through a Web site—www.nacua.org/publications/lohe/index.asp—hosted by the National Association of College and University Attorneys (NACUA), Washington, D.C., on which they will post pertinent new developments keyed to the Student Version, as well as to the full fourth edition. The authors have also prepared a volume of teaching materials keyed to the Student Version and an instructor's manual, available to instructors from NACUA.
