Firon Bar-Nir has helped the Private School Association and a group of parents with a class action law suit against Romania’s Ministry of Health, Ministry of Education and Research, and several other governmental bodies aimed at having in-person teaching in Romanian schools resumed.

According to the firm, one of the key points made in the lawsuit is that “the general measure of suspending at national level the classes in schools and continuing the classes exclusively online can be criticized from many perspectives, but the social dimension of the severe consequences is the one that requires reaction, including by promoting civil actions driven by the imperative to protect the fundamental right to education.” Furthermore, the firm claimed, “the purpose of the regulations adopted in the field of education in the current epidemiological context is to prevent face-to-face interaction, but it should not amount to a flagrant infringement of the public authorities’ duty to ensure the right to education.”

Finally, the firm said that the “the principles of proportionality and non-discrimination should give the permitted extent of restriction of the right to education, as the exceptional nature of the restriction in the exercise of the fundamental rights prohibits the generalization of such imposed limitations that could affect the substance of the right itself.”

Firon Bar-Nir’s team included Partners Alina Moldovan and Catalin Cotorogea, Managing Associate Ramona Birlog, and Senior Associate Cosmin Sovar.
