From the Inside Flap:

Since the 1985 publication of the second edition of The Law of Higher Education, new developments in the courts and in Congress have continued to place campuses under increased scrutiny. In this third edition of William A. Kaplin's indispensable guide to the laws that bear on the conduct of higher education, Kaplin and coauthor Barbara A. Lee provide a revised and up-to-date reference, research source, and practical guide for college administrators, legal counsel, and researchers. This third edition—with fifty percent of the material entirely new—updates the latest major developments in all of the topics covered in the previous edition and offers detailed information on a range of emerging issues including sex discrimination, hate speech, academic freedom in religious institutions, athletic scholarships, animal research, environmental laws, and much more.
