    Noah, I just read a very interesting article in the Chronicle of Higher Education about Canada’s Charter of Rights and Responsibilities being applied to college student discipline. Fascinating stuff.

    I teach a course on Legal Issues in a graduate program on higher education administration in the United States and am trying to include a more global perspective in all of my classes. This issue is very timely.

    I have ordered your recent book on education law and will post the URL for your blog to my course web site. I look forward to sharing your views and Canadian law with my students.

    Thanks so much for the work you do.

    Hello Noah,

    I had a look at your law blog – very well done! I’m also
    interested in commercial law and have studied accident and
    insurance issues as well as partnerships.

    Best of luck,

    I would like to know if there is a way we can complaint against the university for raising the fees by 250% without proper notice?

    I would like to know what can be done legally if a university closes down a PhD program because of reviewer concerns? It seems like they would permit students to finish their degrees but then shut down the program…would this not devalue my degree?
