18 of 18 people found the following review helpful By D. R. Bricault on December 29, 2004
Format: Hardcover
Kaplin & Lee's "The Law of Higher Education (Third Edition)" was the required text for a graduate course, "Legal Aspects of Higher Education" and should be present on the bookshelf of any university administrator. The book's subtitle, "A Comprehensive Guide to Legal Implications of Administrative Decision Making," is wholly accurate in describing the scope and utility of this massive tome (over 1,000 pages from cover to cover).

The book is a valuable investment on a number of fronts, not the least of which is the paucity of comparable texts on this complex topic. "The Law of Higher Education" begins with an overview of postsecondary education law and continues with an interesting organization that considers the college and its various constituencies -- "The College and Trustees, Administrators, and Staff," "The College and the Faculty," "The College and the Students," "The College and the Community," "The College and the State Government," "The College and the Federal Government," "The College and the Educational Associations," and "The College and the Business/Industrial Community." Each chapter is further broken down into key arenas (for example, in the chapter on students, a few of the topics include admissions, financial aid, disciplinary rules and regulations, and athletics). Each topic includes a context and is connected to numerous examples from case law. Despite the high degree of legal terminology, the book is readable for the layperson. There are separate indices for subject, statute, and cases that make it easy to locate relevant information.

This book is an excellent treatment of the enormously complex field of high education law.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book provides a broad overview of the legal issues in higher education. It discusses relevant cases and handles the complexities of federal and state legal issues in a way that is student friendly. While it does assume some basic understanding of the legal system, the appendices are helpful resources that can assist with that necessary background for students new to law.

I consider the index to be essential in this sort of text, and this edition contains three separate, very useful indices. Kindle users be warned, however - the indices are not linked and do not contain page or location references. You will have to use the search feature to find what you are looking for.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The text renders court briefings, cases, filings, and rulings readable and interesting. The text is well written and pertinent to today's challenges higher education faces regarding torts and all court cases from the institution of higher education up to today's amendments to law. Navigating the United States legal system as it relates to higher educational systems can be daunting, but Kaplin has translated the text material with no loss of original meaning. As an 18 year member of a national organization of constitutional law experts, and a 19 year member of a national organization of public policy experts, this Kaplin version of law particulars that are proprietary to law speaks plainly to me, the reader.

This is a great reference. I am using it for a class. It is thorough, yet it is still easy to navigate. I feel this was an excellent investment.

I bought this book for my class. I really liked the simple writing, I didn't think it was too full of jargon. I will certainly keep this as a reference for years to come.
