Our Education Lawyers

Education has changed beyond recognition in recent years.

And the pace of change isn’t letting up. If anything, it’s quickening.

Our seasoned education lawyers help to keep you one step ahead of developments, whether it be advising you on challenging matters of governance and policy, or helping you apply the letter of the law.

At Steele Raymond, our focussed solutions and fresh perspectives take the hard work out of managing change and dealing with your day-to-day challenges.

Helping you with education legal advice

From primary education through to higher and further education, from the public sector to the private sector, our proactive and knowledgeable education solicitors have a wealth of experience in education law and how it works in practice.

Our education law specialists also include partners who are school governors in both sectors. We know that there is nothing like on-the-ground practical knowledge to understand the challenges that schools and colleges face daily.


There’s no substitute for hard-earned experience.
