The Law of Higher Education. Legal Implications of Administrative Decision Making.
Kaplin, William A.
Law's growing involvement with the structure and policies of all postsecondary institutions is addressed in this comprehensive sourcebook on law for administrators and their legal counsel. Detailed discussions of the Bakke and the Horowitz cases are offered along with clear summaries of the laws, regulations, and court decisions pertaining to higher education. Issues such as faculty collective bargaining, liability, civil rights compliance, and federal aid-to-education programs are examined in depth. Legal relationships of an institution to its trustees, administrators, faculty, and students, as well as local, state, and federal governments are interpreted. Chapters include: Overview of Postsecondary Education Law; The College and Trustees, Administrators, and Agents; The College and Faculty; The College and the Students; The College and the Community; The College and the State Government; The College and the Federal Government; and The College and the Accrediting Agencies. Annotated bibliographies at the end of the chapters guide readers to key literature for in-depth study. Also provided are the following: Constitution of the United States of America: provisions of particular interest to postsecondary education; a cross-reference case index; and a subject index. (LC)
