“Challenges in education are only growing.”

Education law is subject to a great number of laws with specific regulations and is therefore complex. Within Kennedy Van der Laan we have joined forces by forming an Education Team, in which all the necessary specialties are represented by attorneys from various legal areas. This way, the Education Team of Kennedy Van der Laan can assist governors of educational institutions in an effective manner.

Education Law, Administrative Law and Civil Law

For governors and other parties involved, the challenges in education are only on the increase lately. How to arrange accommodation? Should we merge or demerge? How to finance new housing? How to go about the dismissal of employees? These are but a few examples of the current matters governors have to deal with. In addition, the legal position of institutions and governors in education is a special one. Education law has common grounds with both civil and administrative law.

The Education Team of Kennedy Van der Laan advises and litigates regularly in all fields relevant to educational institutions. We also have broad experience with the Equal Opportunities Act and the Government Information (Public Access) Act. We offer a way out of complex situations with creative and solid solutions.
