The request was successful.

Dear Hertford College, Oxford,

1. Please can you tell me who your legal advisor is for matters concerning employees and students?

2. How much does this advice cost?

3. Do you pay your advisors a premium that covers the college for Employment Tribunal or court cases?

Yours faithfully,

Dear Mr Lewis,
Thankyou for your email. The college uses Peninsula for staff and student related legal advice, at a cost of £6000; we do not pay a premium to cover tribunal or court cases. We would be interested to know the results of your survey.
With best wishes, Thea Crapper.
