Strategy, Students & Governance

Our Education lawyers work exclusively for universities and colleges and spend every day immersed in the challenges that face leadership teams across the country.

Recognised as leaders in their fields by the leading legal directories, our lawyers are enthusiastic and regular participants in sector events and publications.  These regular interactions with the sector make them an invaluable resource for university and college managers.

The work they do includes:

Advice on good governance and governance disputes
Charity law compliance
Mergers and joint ventures
The creation of group structures
Academic partnerships
Student relations
Data protection and Freedom of Information
Consumer protection
International partnerships and campuses

Education brochure cover

"We’re delighted to be at the beginning of a partnership between two teams who share the same winning spirit and focus on supporting talent to achieve their potential. Everyone here has a great sense of pride and excitement to be working with Team England – a team that, after all, reflects just how much can be achieved by a diverse and varied group of individuals all focused on one goal. We can’t wait to get started."
