Education Lawyers is the dedicated education arm of Langley Wellington LLP Solicitors. Our expert team, led by Langley Wellington Partner, Rukhsana Koser, who leads the Education legal department, has a vast knowledge of the law in education, special educational needs and disability (SEND), annual reviews, exclusion and disability discrimination law, and related law and regulations concerning health and care for children and young people.
We can also help if you have an education complaint, if you are looking for the right school or college and if you have disputes around admissions and education other than at school. Education Lawyers can also support you for a judicial review case. One of our most popular services is our special, great value fixed-price “M.O.T your EHCP” service to go through your child’s draft Education, Health and Care plan with a fine toothcomb. We recommend changes and improvements and tell you where the plan may not be legally compliant.
Compassion and empathy
Rukhsana has personal experience of children with disabilities and she and the whole team work diligently to keep the family and the child at the heart of everything they do. What’s more, the team only works on behalf of families.
You will be treated with dignity, empathy and compassion and your views and experience will be closely listened to, ensuring your child ends up with the support they are entitled to and need.
Education Lawyers are based in the Cotswolds at Gloucester and Cheltenham, but we also operate remotely and will travel when and where needed throughout England and Wales.
Education Lawyers save you time and frustration
We intimately understand the pain and frustration parents have often gone through before they engage legal support. We know you’re concerned about costs and we pledge to be transparent and open with our fees at the start of our service to you. We keep you updated at every step of the way. We know time is of the essence to get the right support in place. We will always approach, and keep talking to, the local authority on your behalf, to try to reach an agreement before the case gets to a Tribunal hearing. This means you save money and your child is more likely to get a suitable package of education, health and care as fast as possible.
