The education law team at Outer Temple Chambers offers a full range of advice and representation on all educational matters acting for or against educational institutions from nurseries through to universities. We also act for the Secretary of State for Education and other public bodies and quangos. Members bring to their education law work complementary expertise in judicial review, employment and professional conduct, personal injury, professional negligence, and discrimination.

Our education barristers combine their knowledge of law with a practical approach, offering reliable advice and judgement. Our education specialists accept instructions from; parents, young people, maintained, academy, free and special schools, charities, non governmental organisations and other quangos, Colleges, Universities and Local Authorities. We can accept direct access instructions and are able to provide legal assessors to advise and support independent lay panels dealing with educational issues. Amongst our members we count Panel Counsel for the Equality & Human Rights Commission and members of the Government B Panel.
