Time: 2:00 - 5:00pm Venue: Room 313, School of Law, Queen Mary, University of London, Mile End Road, London E1 4NS
Over the last few decades, Special Educational Needs law has become an increasingly technical and complex area of legal practice. In addition, cuts to legal aid and the structural features of the tribunal system seem to have made SEN Law progressively inaccessible to the parents/guardians of children and young persons with SEN. This workshop brings together legal practitioners in private practice, charitable organisations, and academics with expertise in SEN law (and Disability Discrimination/Equality law generally) to discuss a range of specific challenges that affect this rapidly growing area of law and to consider ways in which University Law Schools could contribute to its development.
Dr Stephen Allen (Department of Law, QMUL)
Frances Ridout (Director, Legal Advice Centre, QMUL)
