Chambers has a wealth of experience in providing advice to the full range of education institutions, from early years nurseries to some of the UK’s leading further education colleges and universities.

Our expertise includes advising schools in relation to property, land, and planning issues which can arise when a school converts to academy status, for example, or when an independent school or university is redeveloping, or expanding its existing facilities or student accommodation.

Chambers award winning public law advocates regularly advise and act for senior management, in the sector including CEOs, headteachers, Vice Chancellors, Directors and Governors on a broad range of disputes arising from staff disciplinary processes through to student admissions and exclusion procedures, and special educational needs.

Our international expertise enables us to advise independent schools and universities on the range of complex commercial disputes that can arise between UK-based institutions and their joint venture partners based in foreign jurisdictions.
