From the Back Cover:

"Just as academia benefits from the understanding and respect of the legal community, so law benefits from the understanding and respect of academia."
—William A. Kaplin and Barbara A. Lee

Based on the fourth edition of The Law of Higher Education—the indispensable guide to law that bears on the provision of higher education—this Student Version provides an up-to-date reference and guide for coursework in higher education law. It also provides a guide for programs that help prepare higher education administrators for leadership roles.

This important reference is organized into five main parts: Perspectives and Foundations; The College and Its Governing Board and Staff; The College and Its Faculty; The College and Its Students; and The College and the Outside World.

In addition, the book includes a general introduction to the study of higher education law, a glossary of key legal terms, and two appendices for non-law students on the American court system and on how to read court opinions. Each chapter is introduced with an overview of key terms and ideas the students will encounter.

The authors will keep the book up-to-date through a Web site—www.nacua.org/publications/lohe/index.asp—hosted by the National Association of College and University Attorneys (NACUA), Washington, D.C., on which they will post pertinent new developments keyed to the Student Version, as well as to the full fourth edition. The authors have also prepared a volume of teaching materials keyed to the Student Version and an instructor's manual, available to instructors from NACUA.

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.
