The definition of frivolous in cases concerns cases which have already been in court and which have been considered frivolous by the court.


No. That is merely a common example. And there is no particular reason to think that a college must use a supposed definition which come from a different field.

Imagine you are a contestant in a baking competition, and a (competition) judge complains that your icing is mere frivolity.

Would not be in this case the college its own judge?

Moreover the important point is that I could have been victimised and I could have sustained detrimental treatment even if maybe I was not protected by law

Aye, and there's the rub : you were not protected by law.

I think I have said this before.

Discrimination is generally a good thing. It is tat which allows us to choose the correct answer to an examination question rather than the wrong one. All choices are discriminatory - we make choices by first drawing a distinction and a then making a consequent choice.

Discrimination become 'bad' when the logic is faulty and the damage real. It becomes unlawful when the characteristic upon which the faulty choice is made is a characteristic picked out by law for protection.

The law protects the citizens and the rules of the regulatory body protect the student so even if I was not protected by the law I should be protected nevertheless by the rules of the regulatory body

That is a very big leap, but if you think the rules of that body may protect you then the place to start is with those rules. Do they, in fact, contain such a rule?

The law does not protect everyone who, from his narrow selfish point of view, considers that he merits protection. And there is your problem: you want something to which you are unable to demonstrate an entitlement. But you still want, and you dismiss the legal obstacles as "loopholes".

Laws sometimes overlap which cause some gaps between them i.e. loopholes which means that sometimes people are not protected

The rules of that body says that the candidates should be treated fairly. I is not fair to victimise a candidate, to discriminate against him and to cause him detrimental treatment whether this candidate is protected by law or not

When things overlap, there is no gap. That is because they overlap.
