R (on the application of Swalcliffe Park School) v Wokingham Borough Council and another  EWHC 1451 (Admin).
David Lawson appeared for the successful school in a judicial review claim challenging the decision of a local authority to name the school in an EHCP plan against the school’s advice. The case was unusual, involving a challenge to a tribunal order by judicial review, as well as to the decision of the local authority.

David was instructed by Mike Charles of Sinclairs Law.
