Maxwell Gillott - Education Law Services
Very few children go through their time at school without any problems at all, although
in most cases these disappear very rapidly when both parents and teachers are able
to work together. However sometimes children may have greater difficulties either
because of a learning disability or because of some other problems
We can help you to find the right solution for your child and family,
and ensure that your child receives the education he or she needs.

Maxwell Gillott's practice is led by Elaine Maxwell, who is arguably 'the leading education claimant lawyer'. The 'outstanding' team recently acted in statement challenges, uniform policy disputes and in obtaining specialist school placements. Eleanor Wright, who has 'an excellent legal brain', Oliver Studdert and the 'highly effective' Angela Jackman are recommended.

"The biggest provider for the sector," this team remains a giant in the field of education law. It is praised as being "extremely knowledgeable," "caring and highly competent," and the lawyers "help well beyond the call of duty." The team handles a vast number of claims, and has earned a reputation for pushing the boundaries of special education needs (SEN) law. A recent highlight was representing a young boy who was asked to leave the school on his first day of secondary school because of his hairstyle. A High Court ruling found that the school had acted inappropriately and would in future have to change its uniform code to reflect different ethnic or cultural practices.

We believe that the best advocacy at tribunal is undertaken by those who have been
working through the case from the outset. Therefore we undertake most of our own
advocacy in-house unless the parent wants to instruct someone else to represent
them in tribunal.
