    New to this edition

    • Fully revised and updated to take account of the developments in the legal framework of higher education, particularly changes to charity law, governance structures, and data protection and freedom of information
    • Increased focus on the international context of higher education law and practice

    Written by two leading practitioners, this comprehesive and practical guide to the law of higher education in the UK provides extensive analysis of the complex legal framework in which universities work and the remedies which may be sought in the event of disputes. 

    The Law of Higher Education has been fully updated to take account of the many legislative changes which have come into force since the publication of the first edition in 2006. The impact of new charity law; changes in governance structures; developments in the law of employment; academic freedom issues; and the increasing presence of academies and other private Higher Education Institutions are all dealt with in detail, with reference to and analysis of the relevent case law throughout. Although focussing on UK laws, the new edition includes expanded material on the international context, which has become particularly important as institutions are increasingly involved in international exchanges and collaborations, as well as being subject to the increasing globalisation of higher education.

    The text is linked to the updating service on the Oxford Centre for Higher Education Policy Studies website, ensuring that readers are kept up-to-date with developments, even after publication.

    Readership: Solicitors advising institutions and individuals on the practical and legal aspects of higher education; barristers acting in higher education cases; university and college administrators and legal advisors; public authorities and agencies; academics interested in the law of higher education.
