The Education Law Handbook has been written by a team of specialist education law barristers at 11KBW in London, the leading education law Chambers in the country.  It is structured according to the four main phases of education:

    (1) pre-school and nurseries
    (2) schooling for children of compulsory school age
    (3) sixth-form and further education
    (4) higher education
The law applicable to all types of schools, colleges and universities is explained, and themes such as special educational needs, transport, negligence, discrimination and human rights are all dealt with in detail, as is the law applicable to teaching staff and governing bodies.  This is book is quite simply the most comprehensive and detailed book on education law available.
