Book Launch – Robin White and Nicola Newbegin co-author “A Practical Guide to Transgender Law” published by Law Brief Publishing

News

This comprehensive guide, written by Robin Moira White and Nicola Newbegin, is now available to purchase from Law Brief Publishing, Wildy & Sons, Foyles, Waterstones and Amazon.

“The authors have also to be congratulated for having the restraint to set out the law as it currently is, whilst recognising (without attempting to decide) those issues that are yet to be resolved by higher authority, whether political or legal.” – Sir Brian Langstaff.

The book has introductory sections on the facts and language related to trans, and then substantial sections on the relevant parts of the Equality Act 2010 as related to transgender individuals, and the Gender Recognition Act 2004.

Specialist sections then follow, dealing with Associations, Asylum, Criminal Justice, Data Protection, Education, Employment, Family, Healthcare, Media, Name and Gender Marker Change; Politics and Parliament, Prison, Services, Sport, Gender-critical views, Example Policies and Reform. Some sections have been written with assistance from recognised experts in their field.

Early reviews state:

“After a brief scan, it has already been helpful and I can see there’s a whole lot more benefit to come from owning it.”

“…the only up-to-date compendium of trans (and non-binary) law for E&W.”

“just come out and is full of useful content! Do consider buying if you can.”

“The day has just become a tad more sunnier. Thank you Robin and Nicola.”

“It certainly fills a gap in the literature.”
