Abstract

This article examines all reported state and federal cases involving college fraternities and sororities and negligence resulting from the use of alcohol by college and university students from 1970 through 2001. Research examined the litigation volume, fact patterns, defendants named for litigation, and outcomes of cases. Results indicate student affairs professionals should focus more on student intervention than on concerns about institutional liability.
