Our university law solicitors are dedicated to helping university students through difficult times. We appreciate that students spend significant amounts of money and time on their studies and it can be extremely stressful to deal with a dispute with a university.

Our higher education lawyers are committed to help university students with a wide range of issues including:

• University Complaints
• Academic Misconduct Appeals
• Degree Classification Appeals
• Disciplinary Appeals (non‐academic misconduct)
• Plagiarism appeals
• University Fitness to Practise appeals
• Disputes/appeals with PhD
• Complaints to the Office of the Independent Adjudicator for Higher Education (OIA)

Our university solicitors will assist you to navigate the complex processes each step of the way and can represent you at hearings if permitted. Our higher education lawyers will work with you in order to achieve the best possible outcome.

Our higher education law solicitors offer a free initial consultation during which we can explain exactly how we can help you. Our university law specialists will explain our services clearly and we will ensure that you are advised about the best ways of funding your case. We are committed to support you each step of the way.

We will fight for you. You are not alone.
