Judicial reviews of education decisions during the pandemic

25 January 2021 at 5:15pm

Leon will discuss judicial reviews relating to education during the Coronavirus pandemic, looking at both potential areas of challenge and lessons learned from past judicial reviews. He will explore areas where judicial review challenges have been made including exams, universities and SEND.  And – if only because it is interesting – we intend to ask him about lock downs in university halls.

Leon is a barrister practising primarily in Public Law with a particular focus on Education. He has been instructed in numerous judicial reviews relating to education during the pandemic, including the challenge to the A-level exam results in August 2020 and an ongoing challenge relating to online teaching in universities. He is consistently ranked as a leading junior in Education Law in Chambers and Partners and the Legal 500. He is also a Governor of Dr Challoner’s Grammar School (SEND Governor and Chair of the Admissions Committee) and a tutor in Administrative Law at the University of Cambridge.  He will be well known to members as co-author (with David Wolfe QC) of the Noddy Guide to SEN.
