Social Care & Education
The impact of the Care Standards Act 2000 upon the social care sector continues to be dramatic. The barristers at Thirty Nine Essex Street are in a unique position to be able to advise, assist and represent those in the sector. They have long experience of advising the General Social Care Council, as well as appearing before the Registration and Conduct Committees of the Council and in the Care Standards Tribunal. They are also able to draw upon their expertise in other regulatory fields, in particular that of the medical professions, to provide a service tailored to the particular requirements of the individual, company or body.
Members of Thirty Nine Essex Street have long appeared in high profile education law cases, in both the private and public arenas. In the regulatory field, a particular speciality has been cases involving the oversight of the higher education sector. Our barristers also have considerable expertise in other aspects of the regulation of education, for instance through acting for OFSTED and appearing as clerks to independent appeals panels against decisions at both primary and secondary school level.
