Education Solicitor 
Have you ever considered a career as an education lawyer? Interested at the prospect of learning a new area of law that involves dealing with special education needs and university cases?

This is what you’ll be doing

You will be working under one of the UK’s top Education Solicitors. It’s a permanent role that can offer great quality work and a great work/ life balance in addition to learning this area from a highly experienced Director.   

You will assist the Director in a busy case load of educational matters (predominately working on behalf of families with special needs) and therefore you should:

  • Have a genuine interest in this area of law
  • Be empathetic
  • Have excellent communication skills
  • Be commercially astute
  • Be hardworking and willing to learn.

The experience you’ll bring to the team

  • A qualified Lawyer
  • Education experience is desirable but not essential (experience in employment and/or family is desirable)
  • Experience at Tribunals is highly desirable
  • Experience drafting witness statements

What you’ll get in return:

  • A real work life balance
  • A highly competitive salary
  • Modern offices with onsite parking
  • Excellent annual leave and holiday incentives
