Holmes has unrivalled experience of defending student related claims involving issues
Such as discrimination, discipline, fitness to practice, admissions, exclusions, abuse, bullying and harassment, freedom of speech, data protection, freedom of information, failure to ecducate and contractual and regulatory issues, as well as handling employment and organisational and governance matters. We have worked with a variety of organisations and their insurers, from well-known schools, colleges, and universities, in both the State and private sectors, to teaching hospitals and children's secure units, together with local education authorities, charities, examination boards and research institutions. That our client base includes such a comprehensive array of education organisations, and covers such a breadth of expertise, is testament to the knowledge and experience of our team. We understand the structure of the sector, the institutions that operate within it and the challenges they face. We aim to investigate promptly and sensitively, and litigate where necessary with clarity and integrity, enabling our clients to limit the causes of claims, lessen costs and improve their quality of service.
