Special Educational Needs and the Law explains, in a clear and practical style, every aspect of the law and practice relating to special educational needs provision. The new edition of this popular title has been extensively revised and expanded to include detailed coverage of the new regime including new chapters on disability discrimination following the extension of the Tribunal's jurisdiction, the codes of practice underpinning it and all relevant case-law. In addition there is expanded coverage to include the systems now in operation in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Special Educational Needs and the Law provides all this information in one handy volume, together with useful appendices including tribunal statistics. It is essential reading for anyone involved in, or advising on, the education of children with special educational needs.

5.0 out of 5 stars It does exactly what it says on the tin 3 July 2007
An excellent book that delivers exactly what is promised in the title: a comprehensive and detailed account of the law in the UK as it relates to special educational needs. It has separate chapters for England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland where necessary, making good use of case law to illustrate the general points it makes.

As an educationalist rather a lawyer I found the book a somewhat heavy read, but do not consider this to be a criticism. For any lawyer involved in SEN issues, any lay member of SEN and disability tribunals, any LA officer involved with SEN, it is essential reading - or at least, to be aware of the contents to be able to refer to it when necessary. For those involved in day-to-day work with children with SEN, there are, I think, more immediately accessible and helpful books to use - but should you ever be in the position of needing to know exactly what the law says, start with this book.
