Event Details

Discrimination and Economic Inequality:
two faces of disadvantage

This is THE essential conference for anyone interested in equality law, including practitioners, advisers and trade unionists 


This year’s DLA conference "Discrimination and Economic Inequality: two faces of disadvantage" confronts the duality of hardship which increasingly is the reality for far too many people. The critical question: Can you tackle one without the other? will be considered by speakers and in discussions throughout the day. For equality lawyers, advisers and activists, trade unionists and equality officers, this conference offers a unique opportunity to bring together ideas and experience relating to this issue.

Our two keynote speakers, Sarah Veale, Head of Equality and Employment Rights at the TUC and Colm O’Cinneide, Reader in Law, UCL, will consider from their different perspectives what is needed to overcome both discrimination and economic inequality.

Our outstanding line-up of plenary speakers - Karon Monaghan QC, Robin Allen QC and Stephanie Harrison QC will review where we are now in terms of law and policies that impact on equality. Their sessions will cover developments in UK equality law, recent relevant decisions of the European courts and the equality impact of restrictions imposed under immigration legislation.

As in previous years, during the afternoon participants will be able to choose topics they wish to explore in greater depth during breakout sessions covering a range of current equality law issues. The breakout sessions, led by experienced lawyers with specialist expertise, will provide practical advice in relation to particular areas of law or procedures. 

A panel, chaired by Robin Allen QC, reflecting different interest groups within society, will bring the conference back to its main theme - discrimination and economic inequality - and the question “Can you tackle one without the other”.

A drinks reception at the end of the afternoon will be a great chance for participants and speakers to network.

This truly thought-provoking equality law conference offers a special opportunity to hear from and respond to leading experts, to be brought up-to-date on legal and policy developments, to improve your understanding of particular areas of equality law and to share ideas, knowledge and experience with other lawyers, advisers, trade unionists and activists on legal, policy and campaigning challenges to the current reality of discrimination and economic inequality.
