Event Details

Challenging Everyday Racism - Legal and Policy Initiatives

If you are interested in equality law and practice and  
concerned about how the gains of the past can be protected
and used to fight the challenges of tomorrow,
then this is the conference to attend. 
 
 

 

The conference will be held on Tuesday 27th November 2018 at the London offices of Allen & Overy (Bishops Square, LondonE1 6AD).

 

The DLA Conference 2018: “Challenging Everyday Racism - Legal and Policy Initiatives” will explore current equality and discrimination issues through the lens of race. Our speakers will interrogate the strategic litigation and policy tools to challenge racism and the hostile environment for immigrants. Jacqueline McKenzie (solicitor at McKenzie, Beute and Pope), one of our keynote speakers will discuss the lessons learned from representing those affected by the hostile environment and Windrush Scandal. Elizabeth Prochaska’s (Legal Director of Equality and Human Rights Commission) keynote will focus on the ECHR enforcement, including a new inquiry on racist harassment. Ijeoma Omambala (Old Square Chambers) will deliver our regular Legal Update.

 

As in previous years, the participants will be able to choose in-depth breakout sessions covering a range of equality law issues, such as gender identity, disability and how to use the Equal Treatment Bench Book. The breakout sessions, led by experienced practitioners, will provide practical advice in relation to particular areas of law or procedure.

 

Our afternoon panel, chaired by Robin Allen QC of Cloisters Chambers, will concern specific approaches to challenging the hostile environment through immigration law litigation, the media, campaigning to support the welfare of migrants and activism. The confirmed panel speakers are: Nicola Burgess (Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants), Reem Abu-Hayyeh (MedAct), Peter Kumar (DLA Executive Committee) and Shoaib M Khan (immigration and human rights solicitor).


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

We very much look forward to seeing you there.
