Eversheds education sector - experience

Governance and management experience in the education sector

Our governance and management team is widely recognised to be the most experienced and technically sound in the UK. With the many regulations and legal duties that education institutions are required to comply with, you need advisers who fully understand your sector and the unique challenges facing your institution. With our wide breadth of experience in all governance, management and constitutional matters, we can provide you with the space you need to achieve your goals and objectives, free from legal challenge.

We regularly provide advice and assistance with the following:

  • Statutory responsibilities 
  • Powers 
  • Powers and responsibilities under the institution’s charter and statutes, memorandum and articles or instrument and articles of government 
  • Delegation 
  • Committee remits 
  • Codes of conduct and ethics 
  • Registers of interests 
  • Public interest disclosure 
  • Data protection 
  • Freedom of information

We have been closely involved in the development of governance advice and have formulated sectoral guidance on constitutional matters, including statutory responsibility, powers, delegation, committee remits, codes of conduct and ethics, registers of interest, public interests, disclosure and accountability.
