The latest volume in the Core Concepts in Higher Education series explores the complexity of law in higher education and both the limits and opportunities of how law can promote inclusivity and access on campus. Through a historical and legal framework, this volume discusses undergraduate students' histories of inclusion and struggles for social justice in higher education by race, sex, social class, dis/ability, and sexual orientation. Bridging research, theory, and practice, Law and Social Justice in Higher Education encourages future and current higher education and student affairs practitioners to consider how they can collaborate to further a just society.

Special features:

  • Discussion of case law illustrates the reach and limits of law and where higher education professionals can continue to push for social justice.
  • Accessible to non-lawyers, chapters highlight key legal terms and key concepts to guide readers at the beginning of each chapter.
  • End-of-chapter questions provide prompts for discussion and encourage student interactivity.

About the Author:

Crystal Renée Chambers is Associate Professor of Higher Educational Leadership at East Carolina University, USA.

Review:

"Law and Social Justice in Higher Education explores the juxtaposition between law and society in higher education with an emphasis on the evolution of social justice both as a political concept and as a transformative resource. This book’s exploration of the experiences of particular sectors of society--especially minorities, women, and people with disabilities-- significantly contributes to both the scholarship of social justice and the responsibilities of higher education to motivate and foster change."

-Cheryl Crazy Bull, President and CEO, American Indian College Fund

"Chambers’ Law and Social Justice in Higher Education contributes substantially to the field of higher education and to critical discourses that address underlying challenges of race, gender, and class disparity in America and its colleges and universities. Reading this compelling book reminds me why I agreed to start this book series on core issues in higher education."

-From the Series Editor Introduction by Edward P. St. John, Algo D. Henderson Collegiate Professor, University of Michigan
