Editorial Reviews

Review

[Olivas's] treatment of this complex subject is well done and easy to follow.

(Choice)

Olivas resoundingly justifies why more scholars should recognize the political and sociological factors influencing courts today and vice versa. This book successfully chronicles some of the constitutional hallmarks within higher education during the past half century and justifies a broader examination among legal scholars for the future, as issues related to intellectual property, commercialization in athletics, and others predictably will reach this nation's highest court.

(Joy Blanchard Review of Higher Education)

This book successfully chronicles some of the constitutional hallmarks within higher education during the past half century and justifies a broader examination among legal scholars for the future.

(Joy Blanchard Review of Higher Education)

This is an extremely significant book. It is clearly written and reflects Olivas’s extensive experience and broad expertise, especially his uncommonly perceptive view of an increasingly litigious campus environment.

(Robert O'Neil, University of Virginia)

This volume is an excellent introduction to areas of discrimination law that affect postsecondary education. It would be useful for law collections with both extensive and limited holdings in education or discrimination law and those that support graduate programs in educational administration.

(Kathleen A. McLeod Law Library Journal)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It provides a useful introduction to bring the reader more aware about the history of suits concerning colleges, including small private colleges that file suits to get money out of the students.
