Education and public law barrister Faizul Azman has acted for both parents and local authorities across a wide range of education law disputes and public law challenges. A junior barrister, Faizul accepts direct instructions to act on his own and as junior to senior junior barristers at 3PB and other chambers. In education, Faizul has dealt personally with recent School B and F Appeals whilst acting for local authorities.
During his time working with 3PB’s highly-respected Education Team, Faizul has been involved and assisted many of our counsel including John Friel on an Appeal in the SEND Tribunal and Emma Waldron with an Appeal to the Upper Tribunal. Faizul has also recently assisted 3PB’s Head of Education Law, Charlotte Hadfield, and her junior Matthew Wyard when both were dealing with a dispute before the Court of Appeal which was the first case to consider Section 37 of the Children and Families Act 2014.
Faizul has also become a valued member of the Public Law Team and is one of the counsel that 3PB have had working very closely with Ofsted; and has been instructed to work on three of their present Inquiries into child sexual abuse, namely:
- Child Sex Network (IICSA)
- Residential Schools (IICSA)
- Re: Investigation into Effective Leadership in Child Protection
Faizul Azman has a growing reputation and has attracted repeat work from every solicitor and public organisation that has instructed him during his burgeoning career at the Bar.
Faizul also has a keen interest in inquests and the coronial courts, having already been instructed to deal with early hearings, and is developing a good depth of knowledge and caseload in this area.
“… I must say that he was excellent, and the help he provided assisted greatly in a positive result. His notes were excellent and his involvement during the hearing cross checking etc. under considerable pressure was well beyond that which you would expect from his level of qualification”
Partner, Regional Solicitors (Regulatory – disciplinary proceedings)
“A great result”
Solicitor (Employment – remedies hearing)
“Thank you for your counsel yesterday, [the client] is pleased with the outcome of the hearing”
Solicitor (Employment – final hearing)

Solicitor, Local Authority (Education – SEN Appeal)
“I wanted to let you know what a good job Faizul did Clerking the School appeals for us. He was always on time (no mean feat given the distance he travelled), prepared and ready for action… All in all the service he provided was excellent and I would have no qualms about using Faizul again, or recommending his services”
