Robin Moira White has written an article for LGBT+ History Month: “Supporting LGBT+ clients” (Law Society Gazette)

News

Robin White has written an article for LGBT+ History Month entitled “Supporting LGBT+ clients”, which was published in the Law Society Gazette on Thursday 18th February 2021.

“In 2011 I became the first barrister to transition from male to female in practice at the discrimination bar.

My practice covers all aspects of employment and discrimination but more recently I have been acting in an increasing number of transgender cases, including Taylor v Jaguar Land Rover in which the Birmingham tribunal found that non-binary and gender fluid individuals were within the Equality Act protected characteristic of ‘gender reassignment’. Stonewall have described this as a ‘landmark’ judgment and it’s a great read with lots of lessons for diversity and inclusion.

I act and advise as often for employers as employees in trans cases. An example is A. v Telford NHS Trust in which I, and my Chambers’ colleague Nicola Newbegin, successfully defended an NHS Trust accused of anti-trans discrimination in the operation of its A&E department.”
