Summary
Academic Freedom at American Universities: Constitutional Rights, Professional Norms, and Contractial Duties details the legal and historical development of institutional and professorial academic freedoms to better understand the relationship between these concepts. This book argues that while constitutionally based academic freedom does its job in protecting both public and private universities from excessive state interference-or at the very least asks the right questions-it is inadequate because it fails to protect many individual professor in the same way. The solution entails using contract law to fill in the gaps that constitutional law leaves open in regard to protecting individual professors. Contract law is an effective alternative to constitutional law for three reasons. First, unlike constitutional law, it covers professors at both public and private universities. Second, it allows for the consideration of the custom and usage of the academic community in resolving disputes between universities and professors. Third, contract law enables courts to structure remedies that take into account the specific campus contexts that give rise to various disputes. The proposed reconceptualization of academic freedom merges constitutional protection for institutions and contractual protection for individual professors. This combined approach would provide a more comprehensive framework than is currently available under the predominantly constitutional paradigm of academic freedom. Book jacket
