Learning resource centre at the City Clean depot. Upper Hollingdean Road, Brighton. BN1 7GA
This session will summarise the law of human rights within England and Wales,
enshrined in the Human Rights Act (HRA) 1998, bringing ‘convention rights’ (from the
European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR)) into our domestic legislation. The
relationship between the ECHR and HRA will be discussed, as well as summarising
the relevant rights protected, the practical enforcement of the HRA within our law
and the resultant protection of rights, as well as the debates surrounding repealing
the HRA 1998.
Furthermore, equality and anti-discrimination legislation will be summarised, with
specific reference to the protected characteristics under the Equality Act 2010, and
some of the discussions around formal and substantive models of equality and how
these are expressed (or otherwise) through law.
Bookings are closed for this event.
