Student Protest and the Law.
Holmes, Grace W.
This book is a transcript of a forum involving men who have dealt directly and variously with the problem of student protest. In the introduction, the overall problems are viewed as falling into three general categories: (1) student rights; (2) questions of violence and coercion; and (3) the civil liberties aspects of both. Specific considerations include: (1) the goals, functions, responsibilities and limitations of the University; (2) the University's response to disruptive behavior; (3) the dimensions, scope, and causes of campus unrest, reactions to it and possibilities for alleviation; (4) the array of sanctions and their application; (5) the school and the student in court and the difficulties involved; (6) the dual jurisdiction of campus and community and consequent problems; and (7) constitutional considerations, including protection of campus protest. In addition to presenting the essence of the opinions and experiences of the authors, the book also includes the court papers, orders, model codes and procedures which were utilized in their dealings with the problem.
