In the last decade there has been an exponential growth in what is now a discreet area of legal practice “Education Law”. 

The compulsory sector in particular has increasingly required the advice and representation of lawyers in matters as diverse as employment disputes, suspensions and exclusions, negligence, search and seizure, family law, harassment, cyber bullying, responding to complaints to the Ombudsman and Privacy Commissioner. 

Many lawyers are be called upon to assist their local Boards of Trustees, principals, and parents in resolving what can be complex legal issues.  Given the size of the school sector and its increasingly litigious nature, practitioners will find this book both informative and very useful.
