Event Details

Innovation and Good Practice in Challenging Discrimination:

A Caseworkers’ Event 

What is the impact of LASPO on routes to justice for victims of discrimination?

What successful avenues have practitioners been using to challenge discrimination in the current climate?

Join us for a half day workshop with experienced practitioners focused on discrimination and equality. 

We will be discussing the work that is being conducted across our Network, recent trends, casework and how best to work together.

Topics will include challenging discrimination post-Brexit using international instruments and working with the Equal Treatment Bench Book.

John Horan will give a lecture of the Equality and Human Rights Commission's upcoming report on disability and legal aid - the implications on claimants and those that support them, and how best to handle cases. 

Will Stone will talk about equality work from a practitioner's perspective. 

Refreshments and snacks will be provided. 


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.

Will Stone - Bristol Law Centre

Will is Employment and Discrimination Solicitor and Senior Solicitor at Bristol Law Centre specialising in Discrimination and Public Law. He has worked on many discrimination cases in both the employment tribunal and county court.
