The Junior College and the Courts: Summaries of Decisions Related to Authorization and Control. The Junior College and the Courts, Part I: Authorization and Control.
Frankie, Richard J.
This, the first of a series of three publications dealing with the junior college and the courts, summarizes 17 selected case decisions from 1929-70 relating to the authorization and control of the junior college. The cases, treated chronologically, involve private and public colleges. The legal aspects are complex and often in conflict, for the legal bases for education include: (1) constitutions of the various states; (2) constitution of the United States; (3) statutory laws of the states; (4) statutory laws of the national government; (5) decisions of the supreme courts of several states; and (6) decisions of the U.S. supreme court. This work is not intended as a substitute for the professional services of attorneys, but should be used to refer to previous decisions and to stimulate questions about complex legal questions facing the junior college today. Included in this document are the annotated tables of contents for The Junior College and the Courts, Part II: Legal Aspects Concerning Finance and Taxation; and Part III: Legal Aspects Concerning Faculty and Students.
