"After another Central London Education Law Firm failed, Mike was confident with my case from the offest and succeeded in reinstating me back into Leicester Medical School! What makes Mike so good, is not just his really good way with words, his vast experience or his in-depth knowledge of law, but his genuine compassion for his clients. He genuinely treats his clients like his own children. I will be referring a lot of people to this firm in the future. Thanks again SinclairsLaw, you have genuinely changed my life and I will be eternally grateful"

"When times seemed hard and apparent incompetence of others around us seemed to far outweigh our own resources, it was a breath of fresh air to have you dealing with this important issue on our behalf. Your enthusiasm and professionalism knew no boundaries along with your sense of humour, which I remember has been tested to certain limits, but at least we could smile whilst making progress."
Simon & Liz, Carmarthen
Disability Discrimination in Schools
The Special Educational Needs and Disability Act 2001 has made it unlawful for schools to discriminate against the disabled. The law has been considerably strengthened since the passage of the Equality Act 2010. The Special Educational Needs and Disability Tribunal (SENDIST) enables parents to take proceedings against schools which they believe may have contravened the act. The tribunal has power to order a number of things from compelling the school to take certain remedial action or to issue an apology.
What can the Disability Tribunal Do to help?
In certain cases it may order the school to ensure that staff members go on suitable training courses to avoid any repetition of the behaviour.
Does the special needs and disability tribunal award compensation? If not where can I go?
The disability tribunal (SEND ) does not award compensation. In circumstances when compensation is claimed a case should be brought in the County Court . There are however time limits that must be observed. If you feel you have been discriminated against you may wish to speak to one of our specialist disability solicitor advisors.
