Catherine Casserley to speak on Disability and the Equality Act 2010: Removing Barriers to Equality and Human Rights Implementation?

Catherine Casserley will join an expert panel of speakers at this half-day free event on 4 December 2015 that will focus on what impact legal aid and other reforms are having on the enforcement of disability equality rights (now contained in the Equality Act 2010).

This event, jointly hosted by the Centre for Disability Studies and the Centre for Law and Social Justice, University of Leeds in memory of Caroline Gooding (a key architect of our disability equality law) will provide a space for reflection about how disability equality law might be harnessed to contribute to driving the social change for which it was introduced. It brings together activists, lawyers, researchers and others at the cutting edge of these debates to exchange experiences, perspectives and ideas.

Date: 4 December 2015.

Time: 14:00 to 17:00

Venue: Moot Court Room, Liberty Building, University of Leeds, LS2 9JT.For full details and how to register go to: 'Disability and the Equality Act 2010: Removing Barriers to Equality and Human Rights Implementation?' A Caroline Gooding Memorial Seminar
