Peter Oldham QC is a well-known practitioner in the fields of public, local government, education, procurement, and employment law. He has a particular speciality in education law in which, for many years, he has regularly appeared in leading cases. Recent cases of interest include Rota Rooson v Salford CC  EWCA Civ 6, the first Court of Appeal decision to consider consultation in the light of Moseley; Davies v Haringey LBC  ELR 18, where the High Court considered local authorities’ powers of discipline over school staff; Rota BAPIO v RCGP  EqLR 409, an equalities challenge to GPs’ qualification exams; and Rota Nestwood Ltd v Lines CC [2014} BLGR 354, a challenge to an authority’s refusal to follow an Ombudsman’s recommendation. In July this year the Court of Appeal will hear Winstanley v Leeds University in which Peter, acting for the claimant, argues that the so called ‘academic immunity’ doctrine should be ended.
