Day one: The Law of Discrimination
Day one is at introductory level, designed for lawyers new to employment law practice to give a thorough grounding in the law of discrimination. The morning will cover the basics of the UK’s discrimination laws: protected characteristics, direct and indirect discrimination, victimisation and harassment. The afternoon sessions will focus in more detail on the law of disability discrimination and pregnancy and maternity discrimination.

Day two: Strategy and Tactics in Running Discrimination Claims
Day two is designed for junior to mid-level employment lawyers, as well as newly qualified level lawyers who have attended day one. It offers the opportunity to learn from experienced practitioners about the thorny practical issues of running discrimination claims, and what strategies can be used for different types of claims.
