Schools & Education

We are experienced in dealing with disputes arising from the education sector.  Whether acting for a school or institution or a student or family, we are aware of how difficult disputes can be in this sensitive area.

Our work can involve consideration of alleged discrimination or other abuse of process.  Interpretation and enforcement of rules and regulations can be common issues. We have been regularly involved in admission arrangements.

We are able to deal with such matters in a sensitive and understanding way but, at the same time, without losing focus concerning the important issues at stake.  We can also work with education establishments concerning setting up procedures to minimise the risk of disputes occurring.

We regularly advise in relation to examination procedures and means of appeal as well as school administration policies and bullying.
