Disability Discrimination Conference – FULLY BOOKED


Old Square Chambers, 10-11 Bedford Row, London WC1R 4BU

This event is now fully booked.

With so many chambers offering seminars on employment law it can be difficult to choose a seminar that stands out from the crowd. This conference has been designed for practitioners who regularly practice in the field of disability discrimination law. It is given by speakers who are experts in the field of disability discrimination and aim to deepen the attendees’ understanding of this complex area of law. The lectures will assume that attendees already have a good level of knowledge of disability law.

Chaired by Ben Collins QC, he will be joined by Spencer Keen and our external speakers, Ms Karen Jackson of Didlaw and consultant psychiatrist Dr. Mike McPhillips. They will be exploring the following topics, giving specific allotted time after each subject for questions and discussion:

  • Developments on the meaning of disability in European and domestic law – Ben Collins QC, Old Square Chambers
  • The legal frontiers of the duty to make reasonable adjustments – Spencer Keen, Old Square Chambers
  • Causation and detriment in s.15 claims  – Ms Karen Jackson
