A text of use to everyone involved in higher education
This is the second edition of The Law of Higher Education, first published in 1994 and well-received by the higher education sector and legal advisers with an interest in education law. It covers all principal areas of interest to government, politicians, NDGOs, education authorities, governors, staff and students of all types of institution providing higher education. It is also a reference text for solicitors, barristers and advocates who may have to advise institutions or students. It will be useful on education management and law courses. Owing to the strong similarities between forms of governance and legal relationships of students and staff to institutions, it is also useful for lawyers and administrators in other common law jurisdictions (Ireland, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, etc.) The book is recommended reading for members of the Association of University Administrators (UK) and is recommended to the legal profession by the London firm of Lawford & Co, Solicitors with whom the author is a consultant.
