Education Law Blog

Welcome to the Monckton Chambers Education Law Blog.

The blog is written by specialist barristers from Monckton and covers important developments across the field of education law. It includes:

  • case notes on important judgments, both from Monckton and elsewhere;
  • legislative changes and analysis of their implications, for example in relation to human rights; and
  • commentary on topical issues in education law, such as school closures due to COVID-19.

It is aimed at all those active in this area: solicitors, barristers, law students, children and parents, schools, universities and other FE & HE institutions, local authorities, the Department for Education, Ofsted and other education regulators.
