Education law solicitors

Our education law solicitors are able to assist with the areas of law associated with education from admissions, exclusions and special educational needs to discrimination claims or judicial review of decisions made by the authorities. For advice call our specialist solicitors on 0175 321 5096.

We have previously dealt with these types of case under our public law expertise, but demand for the service has led to a dedicated team being established within the human rights and civil liberties department.

The further and higher education team at Stephensons have specialised lawyers who are able to advise students and their parents regarding disputes about their University or College education. We can offer advice on issue such as: academic misconduct, plagiarism, disciplinary issues, withdrawal from university, discrimination claims, breach of contract and negligence.

Our education law team work alongside our recognised community care experts and have found that a holistic approach taking account of the needs at home and schooling is often useful in cases where there may be disabilities.
