Background CLM Limerick provided advice and advocacy support to a family in relation to their son’s expulsion from school. The parents were referred by a family support service to one of the free legal advice clinics. Their 12 year old son had been involved in an incident on his second day at secondary school and he had been expelled from school as a result. They had appealed the decision to the Department of Education & Skills and a “Section 29” Appeal Hearing had been convened to hear the appeal.
