This chapter reports 1982 cases involving aspects of higher education. Interesting cases noted dealt with the federal government's authority to regulate state employees' retirement and raised the questions of whether Title IX covers employment, whether financial aid makes a college a program under Title IX, and whether sex segregated mortality tables used in retirement plans violate Title XII. A new question raised was whether the federal government has the authority to collect defaulted student loans. A review of cases involving intergovernmental relations precedes the chapter's longest section, which addresses employment questions including complaints of discrimination under various federal regulations and in hiring, complaints involving nontenured faculty, complaints from tenured faculty, and collective bargaining cases. Litigation in the area of students' rights includes cases involving admissions, nonresident tuition, financial aid, First Amendment issues, and dismissal procedures. Analyses of liability cases and an antitrust complaint conclude the chapter. (MJL)
