Event Details

Everyday Racism - Policy Initiatives and Legal Responses

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 DLA conference is renowned for its combination of cutting-edge legal commentary, insightful exposition and shaping the policy agenda for discrimination lawyers - this year is no exception.

This year we will be:

• exploring the current key equality and discrimination issues through the lens of race

• considering why prejudice is still so strong and how we can bring an end to it

• examining the legal tools to bring about change

This conference will provide a unique opportunity for speakers and participants to discuss current equality law developments, to hear from leading experts, to be brought up-to-date on legal and policy developments, to improve understanding of particular areas of equality law and to share knowledge and experiences with other lawyers, advisers, trade unionists and campaigners. 

Speakers in the morning include Ijeoma Omambala of Old Square Chambers who will give our regular Legal Update session. The afternoon will consist of our usual lively and participatory workshops and conclude with a panel discussion.

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 practitioners with specialist expertise, will provide practical advice in relation to particular areas of law or procedures.

Our afternoon panel, which will be chaired by Robin Allen QC of Cloisters Chambers will include experts in areas of policy, rights, law and politics. Confirmed panel members include: Elizabeth Prochaska (Legal Director at EHRC), Nicola Burgess (Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants), Reem Abu-Hayyeh (MedAct).

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.
