On Monday 15 July 2019 Cornwall Street was delighted to host the second annual Teacher Regulation Update and Workshop in partnership with The Reflective Practice.

Solicitors and legal staff from four major teaching unions, and a number of others, attended for a series of seminars on sexual misconduct with pupils (led by The Reflective Practice’s Barrister Director, Andrew Faux, an Associate Member of Cornwall Street), the law and tactics of evidence (led by Cornwall Street’s Jonathan Storey), and procedural issues (led by The Reflective Practice’s Solicitor Director, Colin Henderson).
