Challenges to allocation policies

Monday 12 September 2022 | 16:00-17:00

Zia Nabi, Ben Chataway and Alice Irving will provide an update on recent judicial reviews challenging allocations policies and will discuss issues arising such as:

  • Time limits for bringing a challenge

  • Is a challenge rendered academic by the allocation of accommodation?

  • What are the rules of interpretation of a policy?

  • How may the duty to give ‘reasonable preference’ be satisfied?

  • How may the Equality Act 2010 be utilised and what evidence is required?

  • What is the utility of Article 14?

  • Can damages be claimed if the policy is unlawful?

There will be live auto-transcription enabled throughout this event and it will be recorded. All guests will have their cameras and microphones turned off automatically for this event. Exclusionary language will not be accepted.

The audio transcript will be made available on request.

Unfortunately, we will be unable to provide a BSL interpreter for this event.
