The Lanyon Bowdler education law team is made up of experienced Education Solicitors, with a deep understanding of the issues facing primary & secondary schools, colleges and Universities across the UK.
Education law is the legal discipline encompassing all of the possible legal issues pertaining to school systems and student’s rights. This is a complex area as educational institutions face a unique combination of legal and regulatory issues due their position at the intersection of the public, private and charity sectors.
Our Education Lawyers provide clear and practical legal advice for schools, students and families covering the full range of issues related to law in the education sector.
Lanyon Bowdler’s education team provides legal advice to nurseries, maintained and independent schools (including academies) and colleges. Members of our team also have considerable experience in providing advice to Church of England Diocesan Boards and local education authorities.
