The Admission Appeals Season is Open!

06 Mar 2009

This week letters have dropped through the letterboxes of parents across the UK informing them as to whether or not their child has been offered a place at their school of choice.

Last year approximately 20% of pupils failed to win a place at their first choice of school.

Barristers in the Hardwicke Building Education team are often called upon for legal advice, or to provide representation at Admission Appeal hearings. With a wealth of expertise in this area of law, they are able to respond swiftly and efficiently to any enquiries either from instructing solicitors or directly from parents wishing to instruct counsel under the Public Access scheme.

If you wish to instruct a barrister from the Hardwicke Building Education team on an Admission Appeal hearing, or indeed any aspect of Education law, please contact the Senior Clerk – Danny O’Brien on 020 7242 2523 or by email at
