The Women’s Resource Centre are honoured to have Louise Whitfield, public law and human rights specialist and partner at Deighton Pierce Glynn deliver our training session ‘Making the case: Equalities and Human Rights’ on Tuesday 28 March 2017, 10 AM – 4 PM.

This is an amazing opportunity to attend a fully funded training session on human rights and equality legislation delivered by an incredible trainer.

Louise Whitfield is a public law specialist, with 18 years’ experience of conducting high-profile judicial review claims across a wide range of subject areas including discrimination and equality duties, public sector funding and procurement, medical services and community care, claims based on breaches of the Human Rights Act, and claims relating to inquests and prisoners’ rights.

She regularly advises and represents claimants in a wide range of issues arising from the reductions in public sector funding and services, including most recently funding cuts to support groups for people with learning disabilities and women’s refuges.

Louise also has extensive experience of delivering public law training to lawyers and non-lawyers, having designed, developed and delivered a wide range of courses ranging from conference workshops on public law basics and the equality duty, to one-day events on judicial review pre-action tactics and strategy for claimants’ representatives.
