Discrimination in public law

Tuesday 29 June 2021 | 4pm

This seminar will be an update on recent developments involving discrimination in public law cases. It will focus on welfare benefits and immigration, but will aim to explain the important developments in general discrimination law, which we hope will be of interest to claimant practitioners in all areas of public law. 

The speakers and topics will be as follows: 

Shu Shin Luh: Discrimination on grounds of other status

Carla Clarke: Some key recent and pending discrimination cases and the role of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child

Michael Spencer: Discrimination against refugees

Adam Straw QC: Justification, and disability discrimination  

Carla Clarke is CPAG’s head of strategic litigation. Shu Shin, Michael and Adam are barristers at Doughty Street Chambers.
