LAWS 7706 Seminar on Law and Higher Education (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

The Law and Higher Education seminar covers a broad range of pressing contemporary topics impacting institutions of higher education. Topics range from First Amendment concerns on campus, to the business of higher educational institutions (e.g., intellectual property protections and high profile athletic programs), to the impact of government and non-governmental actors on the university, to the future prospects of the American higher education model. The legal, historical, and theoretical underpinnings of each issue are covered, but the focus of the seminar is on the practical decision-making of general counsel, administrators, students, and others who coexist in the university context.
