if you suspect someone has plagiarised your work, then no matter how close a friend they might be, it is your responsibility to report their transgression the moment you become aware of it. Naturally, this can be enormously stressful and can come as such a terrible shock that many students feel completely unable to deal with it.

Testimonials

Excellent service. Will recommend Match Solicitors to friends and fellow students.

Mr Lehr, London

The service was first class and I was encouraged by the Solicitors sound knowledge of education law. Having a child with special needs is a challenge to any parent and the whole process of going to an educational tribunal can be quite daunting. Match Solicitors was able to get the job done professionally and to the highest standard and yet still retaining a very caring and human side which was very reassuring.

Mrs O Akagbosu, London

Match Solicitors would definitely be my first choice, when I need to work with solicitors, who are specialists in education Law.
