Mac and Co Lawyers act for teachers charged with criminal offences in South Australia. We understand that not only is it important to be cleared of any criminal allegations, it is also vitally important you suffer no adverse effects on your teacher registration or employment.
If you are required to appear before the teacher’s registration board or other disciplinary forum, you should arrange legal representation at an early stage. The Teachers Registration and Standards Act 2004 is the law governing the disciplinary process for South Australian teachers.
Student teachers should not underestimate the effect any court matter or police investigation can have on their career aspirations and it is most important they engage a lawyer experienced in disciplinary matters at the very first opportunity.
