About the Author

C. L. Lindsay III is a recognized expert in the field of student rights and educational law. He is the founder and executive director of the Coalition for Student & Academic Rights (CO-STAR), which works with a national network of volunteer attorneys to offer free advice and advocacy to college students and professors. C. L. is the author of the nationally syndicated column "Ask CO-STAR" and is regularly quoted in both national media and regional publications. He graduated from Denison University and went on to receive a law degree from the University of Michigan and practice law for several years. C. L. lives in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.


C.L. Lindsay III explores every possible legal snafu college students could find themselves in. He gives advice on not only how to deal with various situations but also how to avoid problems. Lindsay's surprising humor and a conversational tone, along with his knowledge of what college is really like for students, make the book both easy to read and apply to college life.
Better (and easier to stay awake through) than an introductory course on U.S. constitutional history, "The College Students Guide to the Law" is a helpful handbook for keeping your record clean-in and out of the classroom...Lindsay tempers his advice with plenty of wisecracks, which may set him apart from your overly serious professors.
This entertaining and hilarious read offers straight and honest facts about many legal issues without all the complicated legal jargon.
"...'The College Student's Guide to the Law' may just be the most popular book on campus this fall...Lindsay uses a relaxed, humorous tone to discuss such weighty topics as grade changes, cyber issues and harrassment."
"With practical tips on how to interact with the police, a breakdown of a student's constitutional rights and instructions on how to deal with harassment, sexual assault and other crimes on campus, Lindsay gives students the tools they need to stay clear of trouble and make the most of their college years."
"The College Students Guide to the Law by C. L. Lindsay III promises to preare students for circumstances never covered by their high school counselor...What better way to pass our nation's litigiousness on to the next generation?"
A compendium of information about students' legal rights and the consequences of breaking different laws... With its irreverent tone and pop-culture references, the book speaks the language of today's students.
"...C.L. Lindsay has been helping college students out of legal jams for the past six years with his CO-STAR (Coalition for Student & Academic Rights) organization. Ten thousand calls a year prompted him to write [this book], covering everything from getting a grade throwing a fuzz-free soiree."
"Despite the rebellious title, the book is a straightforward guide to understanding student's legal rights."
