    Legal issues affecting graduate education surface in a variety of areas at the very heart of the university's academic enterprise: from academic and research misconduct,and admissions and employment, to disputes regarding the measurement and communication of academic progress. This updated and revised CGS publication is not intended as a substitute for expert legal counsel, but rather as a general guide for graduate deans and other university administrators to the range of these legal issues and their related implications for graduate education.
