Parents & Students

This area of law often involves sensitive and personal matters, especially where your child may be a minor. We are experienced in handling complex and sensitive education matters. We are also experienced where children and schools have attracted negative media attention.

Our education lawyers can quickly advise you of the best course of action. We can advise you on what the school or universities policies are and we can represent you. We can also offer advice before a dispute escalates on how to interact with the other party to protect your rights.

This legal advice is important as with these types of matters as events can unfold quickly. We advise our clients, so they are well prepared with what to say and often what not to say.

We can also help with VCAA applications such as special consideration for VCE students if an application has been denied.

Teachers & Education Facilities

Having proper legal representation is important. Where a dispute arises as a professional individual or body there can be financial and reputational loss. It is important that any disputes are handled with sensitivity and thoroughly.

There are many agreements, contracts and leases etc about which educators need legal advice on. We can provide teachers and education providers the right legal advice to ensure that they are well protected and compliant.
