Constitutional Law and Higher Education
August 28, 2014 4:16 PM Subscribe
I am currently interested in a legal counsel position at a large state university. While I am qualified for many aspects of the job, my one weakness is a requirement of having a good working knowledge of current Constitutional law and how it currently is applicable to higher education and similar institutions. I am looking for any good online (preferred) or even recently published resources that will provide that thorough knowledge that I seek. Can you help me?

More details about the job, it would cover the gamut of dealing with discrimination lawsuits, student complaints, advising with regard to privacy laws, tenure applications (and denials?), advising with regard to faculty and student affairs, research ethics and conduct, etc, etc.
Bonus question! I would also appreciate any experiences or pointers by those who have worked in a university legal counsel position. I have worked exclusively as a public law attorney for state government in both counsel and litigation capacities, how much of a difference in atmosphere and environment might there be?
Thank you for any and all assistance!
