District & Parish Council Law & Litigation
Fiona McMillan manages the District Law and Litigation Teams at LGSS Law Ltd. The litigators within the team have a wealth of experience in Judicial Review, general litigation and employment disputes and also work with Trading Standards teams and District Councils on criminal matters.
We have represented numerous schools converting to academies on the full range of legal issues and changes resulting from the conversion.
We have also been involved in advising a number of other organisations on large scale transfers of staff under TUPE (Transfer of Undertakings-Protection of Employment).
We are working closely with education colleagues in dealing with ever increasing numbers of appeals by parents whose children have not been given places at their preferred schools. We also provide advice, representation and training on a range of legal issues including:
Admissions; attendance; abusive visitors to school; access to educational records/ data protection; behaviour management and exclusions; changes of pupil name; child protection; duty of care; educational provision; governance procedures; internet abuse; parental responsibility; pupils’ property; school trips; school uniform; Special Educational Needs; sex education; witness statements; and work experience. For information about the District Law and Litigation Team please contact Fiona the Department Head who will be happy to help.
