Janata’s professional biography

Introduction

My role at Boyes Turner involves assisting young people and families in a range of Special Education Needs (SEN) related cases.  I work closely with parents, young people and various support groups to assist at all stages of the SEN process.  This could mean requesting more support in school, requesting a formal assessment of a child’s SEN and securing Education, Health and Care Plans (EHCP).  This can also involve running Tribunal appeals for parents and securing a change of school placement to somewhere more suitable to the child’s needs.

Areas of expertise

I have 16 years of experience in the area of Education Law.  I have particular expertise in handling challenging and highly complex Tribunal appeals and am recognised for successfully undertaking wide ranging work in the field of education law.  I assist families with extremely vulnerable children who have profound, complex and multiple disabilities seeking additional specialist educational provision and often residential school placements, at independent special schools.

In public

I have given many talks and provided training sessions on SEN law, Tribunal Appeals, report writing and EHCPs to parents, charities, therapists and school staff. I also write articles on all of these areas for parents and other experts on our website.

Memberships

Member of the Education Law Association.

Formerly

I have worked for a number of firms in the 16 years I have been practicing Education Law.  My most recent role was as Education Lead at Moore Barlow LLP, formerly Moore Blatch LLP, where I worked for over 7 years.    I also headed the Education Team at the Tower Hamlets Law Centre, a charity managing the largest legal aid contract in Education in London.
