Informal note to users of my casebook (hereinafter, OLIVAS POSSE): (CAP website)

The Law and Higher Education
Cases and Materials on Colleges in Court 
Third Edition, 2006 
An open letter from author Michael A. Olivas

Dear Colleagues, 

In creating the third edition of The Law and Higher Education: Cases and Materials on Colleges in Court, I made a number of changes, both to update and to make the materials more accessible to students and teachers, as well as the many lawyers and scholars who use the text for its reference value. I also wrote the first Teachers Manual for the text, and I hope that you find it helpful.

If you are reading this, you have access to my web site, where I post many materials on higher education legal issues and immigration matters, especially my continuing work on the intersection of these large topics: .  You can check the site for updates, revisions, and other materials. My current plans are to update the web site regularly and to issue a full supplement in three or four years.  Therefore, I hope to hear from higher education law colleagues by any means - high-tech or otherwise.
