About Legal Services for Schools and Academies

Nottingham City Council’s Legal Services Team (NCCLS) works with head teachers, governors and support staff to provide high quality proactive legal advice and assistance.

Many of you will be aware of the growth in areas requiring legal advice and assistance. The range covers assaults on staff and allegations against them, employment law advice, advice in relation to dealing with solicitors' letters and many other issues. We believe schools need access to high quality legal support when such situations arise. Access to legal advice at an early stage can often avoid major difficulties, management time and expense later.

Our Services will give you access to

  • Legal support from qualified lawyers in respect of the service packages outlined.
  • Packages which provide legal advice and assistance to maintained schools and academies including where appropriate, representation in the Employment Tribunal and County Court.
