"The days of a school being able to rely solely upon the advice of someone without a law degree are fast disappearing. Getting correct advice at the outset of an issue has enabled us to be more knowledgeable in our responses and to clear up issues much more quickly than in the past, when Judicium were not our advisors.” Barry Nicholson, Business Manager – Shirley High School
