A Legal Overview of the New Student as Educational Consumer, Citizen, and Bargainer.
Laudicina, Robert A., Ed.; Tramutola, Joseph L., Ed.
The authors in this series of essays have designed a modern approach to the difficulties confronting educational administrators who need to know the how and why of today's legal requirements for college students as well as the need for preventing legal pollution of administrative decisionmaking. Included are specific cases and interpretive commentary that reinforce and illustrate the educational and legal models developed by the authors. Essays and court cases cover: a legal time frame for the educational administrator; admissions, a changing marketplace (including the case of DeFunis v. Odegarrd); financial aid and the age of majority (including the residency case of Vlandis v. Catapano); confidentiality and the college student (Morris v. Smiley, Griswold v. the State of Connecticut, the People v. Lanthier, and Piazzola v. Watkins); student service contracts; advising grading, and curriculum (Balogun v. Cornell University, Healy v. Larsson); student organizations, fees, and unionization (Lace v. University of Vermont); and the trend toward contractualization. Contributing authors are: Joseph Bevilacqua, Neil S. Bucklew, Irving Buchen, Jonathan Flagg Buchter, Alan C. Coe, John Coleman, James Giles, Tom Heaton, David Hill, Robert A. Laudicina, Eleanor Laudicina, Richard D. Rowray, Charles Selden, Alexander G. Sidar, Jr., Joan S. Stark, Richard L. Tombaugh, and Sandra L. Willett. (MSE)
