Advice on governance, statutes and ordinances in the Higher Education sector

In relation to chartered universities we have considerable experience in statutes and ordinances, and particularly the provisions regarding academic staff.

Academic staff and transitions to revised model and modernised statutes

Our experience includes the transition to the new model statute under the Education Reform Act 1988 to the revised model statute and to modernised statutes whereby staff matters may be removed from the body of the statutes and placed in supporting regulations subject to statutory provisions concerning academic freedom and other fundamental matters.

Charitable status of universities

As a charity firm we are also well placed to advice on the charitable status of universities both in relation to exempt status in relation to universities and non-exempt status in relation to Oxford and Cambridge Colleges.
