Education Law is a specialist area that involves legal principles affecting children and students within the education system.
Education Act 1996 is up to date with all changes known to be in force on or before 23 March 2020. There are changes that may be brought into force at a future date, especially considering COVID-19 pandemic.
Decisions are made by schools, colleges, universities, and local authorities all the time. It is important to remember that these are not always lawful, and every case is considered individually.
We offer a genuine one to one approach.
We are able to advise you in respect of:
Higher Education Appeals
Special Educational Needs

We will take thorough instructions from you to understanding your/your child’s unique circumstances. We will then explain to you, in simple terms to understand, how the law can work for you, and the steps that are available to resolve the problems.
