About Browne Jacobson LLP

Our team of dedicated and trusted higher education lawyers understand the globally competitive and challenging environment in which you operate and know you need pragmatic and practical solutions for your institution.

As an extension of your in-house legal and HR teams we will help you to make informed decisions and identify and manage risk. Our employment and HR services include (but are not limited to) recruitment, contractual and settlement agreements, immigration issues, pensions, employment training solutions and advocacy services. We can also provide you with practical resolutions to grievance, disciplinary, ill-health and performance-related matters.

In the ever-changing world of higher education, it’s more important than ever that you have access to specialist higher education legal advice that you can rely on.

Our team will work with you to help you make and take opportunities in the rapidly changing legal, regulatory and commercial landscape you operate in, both domestically and internationally. We’ll do this by providing genuine insight into current higher education law and a fresh perspective on the issues you face, as well as delivering client-focused solutions rather than technical answers to defined legal questions. We’re always looking to influence, innovate and challenge the status quo. We add value wherever we can.
