Challenging cuts to public services in a post-Covid world

Monday 28 June 2021 | 4pm

After the financial crisis in 2010 significant cuts were made to public services under the banner of austerity. Post the pandemic, it is widely anticipated that further cuts will be made to the welfare state, with significant consequences for the people who rely on those services. This seminar will look at the law as it applies to decisions made on this context, with a particular focus on discrimination and Equality Act 2010, consultation and legitimate expectation.  It will provide legal and practical advice for lawyers, activists and civil society organisations who are concerned about the prospect of another bout of austerity in all but name.

The speakers are: Leonie Hirst (Chair), Jamie Burton QCAlice Irving and Oliver Carter of Irwin Mitchell.
