  • Description: This book provides an understanding of a dozen leading education-related cases, focusing on how the litigation was shaped by lawyers, judges, and social factors, and why the cases have attained landmark status. In this book, a group of prominent education and constitutional law scholars have brought to life 12 of the most interesting cases ever litigated, a number of which are taught in basic law school courses. Both cases in higher education settings and school law are included. Cases have been selected to provide a historical sampling of different times and important issues, including religion, finance, race gender, and disabilities.
