Our team of education solicitors are recognised as a leading provider of legal services to the sector in Northern Ireland.

Educational institutions face many legal challenges. Pressure on funding, the increased risk of decisions being the focus of judicial review or the complex negotiations around major infrastructure projects are all issues our education clients are facing today.

At Carson McDowell, our market-leading team assists clients in managing the complexities of this rapidly changing legal, commercial and regulatory landscape.

Our clients include higher education, further education, schools, colleges and education service providers. Our close relationship with these clients give us a privileged insight into the evolving pressures on the sector, and a knowledge to draw upon when we are seeking the right solution.

We recognise that our clients are complex organisations with multiple legal requirements. They choose us because of our ability to combine knowledge and experience of the education law with expertise across employment, construction, corporate, commercial, intellectual property and dispute resolution law. With all our specialists in a single sector team, our clients benefit by being able to draw on the very best legal advice.
