Event description

Description

The Law Centres Network and Cloisters Chambers invite you to join us for a half day conference focusing on the recently updated Equal Treatment Bench Book, and its implication for those within the judicial process with protected characteristics.

For more information about the Equal Treatment Bench Book, read this article by our key note speaker Mr John Horan: LAG Article

We believe the conference will be useful starting point for making sure that rights are upheld and continue to be so, folowing the UKs (potential) exit from the European Union.

“Access to Justice: The new Equal Treatment Bench book and the ghost of Brexit”

15.00 Coffee Break

Speakers:

John Horan - Cloisters

John specialises in all kinds of anti-discrimination work and employment law. He was the first barrister to receive guidance from the EAT about disabled people's rights before any court or tribunal. In 2016 John was listed by Power 100 as one of Britain’s most influential people with a disability. In 2015 John hosted the European Commission's Monitoring Conference in Brussels on the Rights of People with Disabilities and the Courts.

John successfully challenged the state honour system in Trindad for fostering differences and not being in compliance with international law. He also successfully challenged the terms offered to part-time high court judges as discriminatory at Croydon Employment Tribunal.

John appears frequently for law centres, the FRU, ELAAS, Bar Pro Bono Unit and the Disability Law Association as well as well-known solicitors firms.
