Van Doorne offers advice to educational organisations and authorities and offers assistance in dealing with strategic and legal issues. Our team consists of specialist lawyers from various disciplines who work closely together.
We often encounter administrative transfers, mergers, divisions and internal structuring. We operate on the basis of a broad range of relevant expertise, focusing on sectoral (educational) legislation, tax, employment and civil law. We also deal with a lot of issues in the fields of governance and the mutual relationships between directors, internal and external supervisory bodies and employee participation.
We have an extensive knowledge of integrity and ethics and we also often deal with assessments and accreditations of schools, subsidies from the NWO (Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research), KNAW (Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences) and other knowledge institutions and issues regarding funding conditions for education and research.
An understanding of challenges
We have years of experience with assisting funded and non-funded educational organisations throughout the sector, from childcare to primary education, through to secondary, professional and university education. The experts of our team have an insight into political & administrative trends and policy cycles and they know all about the social challenges you are faced with. We are often engaged by authorities and umbrella organisations.
