Abstract

This article presents a broad-based plan to prevent high school hazing. Part I of this article details the problem of high school hazing. Part II explains how American law, both civil and criminal, addresses hazing. Part III discusses the shortcomings in moral reasoning that underlie American anti-hazing law. Part IV explores four legal alternatives to better address high school hazing. Part V suggests that the best way to prevent hazing is by both implementing broad-based federal anti-hazing law and instituting various state and local reforms.

Keywords: hazing, high school hazing, hazing prevention, anti-hazing law
