Burness Paull is committed to providing high-quality legal services to meet the needs of the diverse education sector across Scotland.
Further and higher education institutions operate in the public sector and private sector, and as charitable bodies.
There are over 100 independent schools operating across Scotland, many of whom are registered charities, educating around 30,000 pupils and making an important contribution to the Scottish economy.
This cross-cutting environment gives rise to a range of complex legal issues and challenges, arising from developments in the law to changes in government policy, constitutional arrangements and national and global issues.
Our team of education lawyers has a wealth of experience providing support to a wide range of bodies operating in education, including higher education institutions, further education colleges, schools and commercial education providers.
We offer highly-responsive legal services, combining quality with best value.
This includes supporting the aims and ambitions of clients through our international reach via legal network partnerships across the globe.
