Northern Education Trust

Working to fulfil the potential of young people

Legal

We aim to provide a quality legal service to our academies in a timely and cost effective manner.

Our approach is friendly, precise and professional.

Key Service Features

The type of legal work we can offer includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Civil Litigation
  • Academy conversions
  • Building projects
  • Commercial property transactions (disposal and acquisition)
  • EU Procurement
  • Contracts and tendering
  • Employment
  • Information governance
  • Intellectual property
  • General education law advice such as safeguarding

As well as providing support to our Local Governing Bodies on issues of corporate governance.

By employing its own in-house lawyer the Trust hopes to reduce the costs of the legal services it provides to academies, utilise external professional advise more effectively and speed up turnaround times on some of the more routine matters.
