This course will examine and
discuss topics in higher education law that are currently in the news. Areas to be covered will include affirmative action in higher education
admissions, Title IX, faculty unionization, faculty tenure rights, and faculty
and student academic freedom/freedom of expression. We will examine these
issues not only through case law, statutes and regulatory guidance but also
through pleadings, reports, and other documents made public in currently
pending (or just concluded) cases.
Pass/Fail. Enrollment limited.
