Human rights in schools

The human rights lawyers at Leigh Day are recognised nationally as being experts in bringing judicial reviews on behalf of local groups who are concerned about the establishment of academy schools in their area, and have successfully challenged plans by local education authorities to replace existing schools with city academies. The team has also advised on free schools and admission and exclusion matters.  Our education lawyer use judicial review to ensure that children receive all the education provision they are entitled to and we help people and groups who believe that their rights have been infringed by government bodies and other public authorities acting unfairly or unlawfully.

We also bring cases on behalf of adults who have suffered abuse, neglect, psychiatric harm and other injury or loss as a result of their local authority’s failure to provide education appropriate to their needs.
