As the concept of the “rule of law” progressively transitions from an idea to a tangible reality, the importance of understanding rules and emphasizing the supremacy of rights has grown. These have evolved into key value concepts advocated by modern societies where the rule of law prevails. This development is especially critical in the context of higher education. As the concept of administering schools according to law becomes more ingrained, and students’ awareness of their rights continues to amplify, a troubling trend is emerging. Neglect of due process and an indifference towards students’ procedural rights in university management have become increasingly evident. This disregard has led to a steady flow of legal disputes in the education sector. Hence, safeguarding students’ procedural rights becomes a critically important matter. In education management, adhering to the principle of “due process” and upholding the concept of “natural justice” involves providing students with the rights for prior participation, informed and defensive measures throughout the process, and post-procedure remedies. This is done not merely to safeguard their constitutional right to education, but also to unequivocally respect student’s human rights. Moreover, it paves the essential path for promoting the modern rule of law within the field of education.
