Education Lawyers is the dedicated Education Law department of Langley Wellington LLP Solicitors. For many years, our lawyers have been providing legal advice to families throughout England and Wales. We’d love to tell you more about us!
The Education Lawyers team covers education law in both England and Wales. We are highly experienced and skilled in providing legal advice and practical solutions for education issues. Our particular focus is special educational needs and disability (SEND).
Who we work for
We only represent children, young people and their families. Unlike some SEND solicitors, we don’t work for local authorities so you can have absolute confidence that we’re on your (and only your) side.
Because we only deal with cases in this highly specialist area of law, clients can be sure about our knowledge and application of the law and its associated regulations. We have dealt with thousands of cases, ranging from refusal to assess for a statutory assessment of SEND to Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) appeals to the SEND Tribunal and Annual Reviews.
We can represent you for claims of disability discrimination in education and Judicial Review if, for example, provision in an EHCP is not being delivered. We can also help children facing, or who have already been excluded from school.
Additionally, we can help families with school admission appeals.
We are delighted to have been recognised for several years in the Chambers and Partners Legal Directory as a leading Education Law firm acting for individuals. The 2019 edition of Chambers and Partners states:
What the team is known for: Prominent national practice with considerable experience assisting children and young adults in post-16 and post-19 provision. Particularly noted for its strong track record in SENDIST proceedings. Also recomended for advice on bullying cases and school exclusions
