Discrimination Law Conference 2019 by TUC and Michael Rubenstein Conferences

January 18, 2019 @ 08:45 - 16:00

This high profile annual conference gives trade unions, law centres, CABx and other voluntary organisations the chance to hear from the leading barristers on the latest legislative developments and landmark equality cases.

The cost for trade unions, law centres, CABx and other voluntary organisations is £75 per delegate. Other organisations may be able to book a place for this conference at a higher commercial rate via Michael Rubenstein Conferences.

Early booking is strongly advised as in the past this conference has been oversubscribed and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. In order to assist unions to send officers from the regions, TUC affiliates will receive one free place for every ten booked (the free ticket will be refunded to you once you place the order).

Please note we will NOT accept any bookings for this event without payment in advance.
