The legal reference for student affairs professionals written by the experts in higher education law. The Law of Higher Education—currently in its third edition—is the bestselling reference, research source, and practical guide for college administrators, legal counsel, and researchers.Drawing directly from and building on their acclaimed work, the authors of The Law of Higher Education have now created a comprehensive resource for student affairs professionals. Legal Guide for Student Affairs Professionals provides access to the laws that undergrid and regulate student programs, services, and activities. It offers a fully indexed and cross-referenced guide to the state and federal laws that bear on student conduct, students' relationships with institutions, institutional obligations toward students, and student and institutional liability relating to on- and off-campus events activities. The book's content reflects the vast scope of student services—all campus activity that takes place outside the classroom and curriculum—and includes up-to-date information about laws that regulate the status of students, financial aid, student housing, student organizations, disciplinary and grievance systems, student voting in the community and much more.
