Disability and the Equality Act 2010: Seminar

Disability and the Equality Act 2010: Removing Barriers to Equality and Human Rights Implementation?’ A Caroline Gooding Memorial Seminar

Friday 4 December, 14:00-17:00, Moot Court Room, School of Law, University of Leeds, book here

Twenty years after the enactment of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995, it is becoming clear that legal aid and other reforms in England and Wales are having a significant impact on the enforcement of disability equality rights (now contained in the Equality Act 2010). This half-day seminar focuses on the nature and extent of this impact and provides a space for reflection about how disability equality law might be harnessed to contribute to driving the social change for which it was introduced.
