Abstract: The role of the school counselor in North Carolina expanded greatly between 1970 and 1990. During the 1980s, counselors became increasingly involved with the American legal system as defendants and plaintiffs, friends of the court, expert witnesses, and witnesses of fact. Because of this association with the courts, counselors need to know and understand the laws and regulations pertaining to their role. This dissertation provides a comprehensive review of the critical legal issues facing the school counselor of the 1990s and pertinent laws and legislative enactments determining the legal aspects of the school counselor's role. This study compiled a resource of legal information, with particular reference to North Carolina, that could assist school counselors in making ethical and legal decisions.
