To Search or Not to Search!
Taylor, J. Rodney
Constitutional guarantees, as provided by the Bill of Rights, are enjoyed by all citizens. This principle applies no less to students with respect to their college or university domicile. Case law on this subject suggests that three questions must be answered to determine the reasonableness of residence searching: (1) by whom the search is conducted; (2) the specific reasonable cause precipitating a search; and (3) the circumstances under which evidence of unlawful activity is found. Careful and thoughtful consideration of the basic principles of search and seizure can help in avoiding legal difficulties and infringement of student rights. (Author/KA)
