Notes

Abstract: A clear understanding of the law, the sources from which law emanates, and the structure of the court systems in the United States is central to developing a conceptual framework for the study of higher education law. This chapter briefly introduces the sources of law, the legal process, and the structure of the courts in order to provide such a framework. Principal sources of law are delineated, and the relationship between law and the legal process at both federal and state levels is explored, with particular emphasis on higher education.

This the page proof draft of a book chapter to be published in the third edition of "Contemporary Issues in Higher Education Law."
