Higher Education.
Hendrickson, Robert M.; Finnegan, Dorothy E.
The higher education case law in 1988 is extensive. Cases discussed in this chapter are organized under five major topics: (1) intergovernmental relations; (2) employees, involving discrimination claims, tenured and nontenured faculty, collective bargaining, and denial of employee benefits; (3) students, involving admissions, financial aid, First Amendment rights, and academic and disciplinary dismissal; (4) liability, involving personal injury, workers' compensation, contracts, negligence, medical malpractice, and indemnification; and (5) antitrust, involving patent issues, copyright, and estates and wills. Cases that stand out as involving significant issues include a university challenge that a federal agency's award of a grant was inconsistent with the law, and the United States Supreme Court s ruling that a collective bargaining agent could not have access to an institution's campus mail service.
