The Law of Education

Widely acknowledged as the leading authority on education law in England and Wales, The Law of Education provides solicitors, barristers and all those working within educational establishments and local authorities with access to all the materials relevant to education law and policy, accompanied by explanatory commentary.

It includes the relevant statutes, statutory instruments, cases, guidance and codes, extensively cross-referenced and annotated. Most importantly, it keeps subscribers up-to-date with ongoing developments in education, providing the complete annotated text of all the Education Acts, including the Further Education Act 1985, the Education Reform Act 1988, the Further and Higher Education Act 1992, the Education Act 1994, the Education Act 1996, the Education Act 1997, the Teaching and Higher Education Act 1998, the School Standards and Framework Act 1998, the Learning and Skills Act 2000, the Education Act 2002, the Higher Education Act 2004, the Education Act 2005, the Education and Inspections Act 2006, the Further Education and Training Act 2007, the Education and Skills Act 2008, the Apprenticeship, Skills, Children and Learning Act 2009, the Children, Schools and Families Act 2010, the Academies Act 2010, the Education Act 2011 and the Children and Families Act 2014. Provisions in other Acts which are considered to be of particular relevance to education are reproduced. These include the Human Rights Act 1998, the Children Act 2004, the Childcare Act 2006, the Government of Wales Act 2006, the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006 and the Equality Act 2010, the Charities Act 2011 and the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012.

Summaries of reported cases, arranged according to subject area, are set out in a separate Division, and a useful glossary is also included.

With ever more powers being conferred to the National Assembly for Wales, separate Divisions for Wales now cover both primary and secondary legislation (including the 2013 School Standards and Organisation (Wales) Act).

The service is also now available on CD-ROM as part of Butterworths Education Law Service.
