A recent article from the Pennsylvania Law Weekly entitled, “University Breached Contract With PhD Student, Court Says,” presented the somewhat confusing subject of whether graduate students or other college students, for that matter, have any due process-style rights to their education, either contractually or constitutionally.

The article concerned the decision in Morein v. Drexel University, PICS Case No. 00-0184 (C.P. Philadelphia Feb. 1, 2000) Sylvester, J., but the debate concerning rights of graduate students began in the case of Ross v. Pennsylvania State University, 445 F. Supp. 147 (M.D. Pa. 1978), filed by Judge Malcolm Muir.
