FIRE Releases New ‘Guide to Due Process and Campus Justice’

PHILADELPHIA, March 10, 2015—The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) is proud to announce the publication of the second edition of our Guide to Due Process and Campus Justice.

Originally released in 2003 as the Guide to Due Process and Fair Procedure on Campus, the newly updated edition provides readers with a detailed understanding of student rights in college and university disciplinary hearings. It focuses on the evolving challenges to due process rights on today’s campuses at both public and private universities, including a new section on student rights in sexual misconduct hearings and an overview of legislative, judicial, and administrative developments affecting student due process rights in recent years.

The new Guide is available for free download on FIRE’s website. Educators, students, and student groups may request copies in bulk by contacting FIRE.

The Guide was coauthored by FIRE co-founder and board chairman Harvey Silverglate and attorney Josh Gewolb. FIRE Vice President of Legal and Public Advocacy William Creeley edited the new second edition.
