The judgment of the Supreme Court in the cases of Johnson, Hotak and Kanu constitutes a milestone in homelessness law, being the first decision of either the Supreme Court or the House of Lords on the meaning of “vulnerability” for the purposes of the Act and marking the end for the long-established Pereira test”. Lindsay Johnson (who appeared as counsel in the Johnson case) will be chairing the seminar. David Carter and Daniel Clarke will explore the key themes from the judgment, the practical implications for those working on homelessness cases and possible areas for future development.
