The Discrimination Law Association is delighted to advise you that booking is now open for its 2018 Conference.


The conference will be held on Tuesday, 27 November 2018 at the London offices Allen & Overy (Bishops Square, London E1 6AD).


Reserve your place now by going to our secure booking website:


Using our dedicated facility, you can book your place, select your preferred breakout sessions, advise us of any access or dietary requirements - you can opt to register and pay immediately by card (default) or register only and pay later (click on the down arrow in the Payment section and select "pay by cheque").



The DLA conference is renowned for its combination of cutting-edge legal commentary, insightful exposition and shaping the policy agenda for discrimination lawyers - this year is no exception.


This year we will be:


exploring the current key equality and discrimination issues through the lens of race

considering why prejudice is still so strong and how we can bring an end to it

examining the legal tools to bring about change.


Speakers in the morning include Ijeoma Omambala of Old Square Chambers who will give our regular Legal Update session. The afternoon will consist of our usual lively and participatory workshops and conclude with a panel discussion.


As in previous years, during the afternoon participants will be able to choose topics they wish to explore in greater depth during breakout sessions covering a range of current equality law issues. The breakout sessions, led by experienced practitioners with specialist expertise, will provide practical advice in relation to particular areas of law or procedures


Our afternoon panel, which will be chaired by Robin Allen QC of Cloisters Chambers will include experts in areas of policy, rights, law and politics. Confirmed panel members include: Elizabeth Prochaska (Legal Director at EHRC), Nicola Burgess (Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants), Reem Abu-Hayyeh (MedAct)


A drinks reception at the end of the afternoon will be a great chance for participants and speakers to network.


We very much look forward to seeing you there.
