‘Book today to attend this year’s DLA conference: places are filling up fast.
Following the referendum on EU membership we find ourselves at a critical juncture for discrimination law. The DLA invites you to joint them in conversation about what the referendum result means for discrimination law, and what practitioners can do to maintain and enhance legal protection against discrimination.

The keynote speakers are Professor Uduak Archibong MBE and Clare Moody, MEP, and Robin Allen QC will speak on current trends in discrimination law. In the afternoon participants will be able to choose from a range of breakout sessions led by experienced practitioners with specialist expertise. The closing panel includes Professor Aileen McColgan of Matrix Chambers, Omar Khan of the Runnymede Trust, Ben Patrick of Unison and Sam Smethers of the Fawcett Society, and is followed by a drinks reception.

The DLA conference is renowned for its combination of cutting-edge legal commentary and insightful exposition and this year will be no exception. Join us to help shape the policy agenda for discrimination lawyers.’
