The Equality Act 2010, almost all of which is now in force, has consolidated and made changes to discrimination law, including the extension of the equality duty on public authorities, which came into force on 5 April 2011.
Practitioners in community care and housing law, employment law, police actions and prison law will look at important aspects of the Act, and at discrimination law in the light of the Act in some specific areas of practice.
