Event description

Description

Come join the Haldane Society of Socialist Lawyers in conjunction with the Haldane Feminist Lawyers at this special International Women's Day edition of our yearly human rights lecture series.

You do not have to be a student of the University of Law nor a Haldane member to attend this lecture. We are open to all who want to learn more. We will be discussing the state of women within the welfare state in 2019, including "benefits reform", the effect of austerity and fighting back against these policies. We will be hearing from Caoilfhionn Gallagher QC, a barrister from Doughty Street who have been involved in successfully challenging the benefits cap and the bedroom tax. We are also pleased to confirm that Patricia Cazenave will also be speaking. Patricia worked as an environmental lawyer and then as a project manager at the Indoamerican Migrants and Refugee Organisation, and she is now a caseworker at a charity which supports homeless people in London.

There will be time for contributions from the floor, as well as questions and answers. Looking forward to seeing you there!
