Comparative Equality Law – A View from the Bench

by | Apr 21, 2014

On 28 May, Justice Abella of the Supreme Court of Canada and Justice Baer of the German Federal Constitutional Court discussed how the concept of equality was dealt with in their respective jurisdictions. This seminar formed part of a series of lectures funded by the Bapsybanoo Marchioness of Winchester Lectureship. Both judges drew upon high-profile cases to illustrate their points, and the audience was able to engage in a discussion about issues as varied as the practical implementation of equality, and the future of the concept.

A full report of the seminar will feature in our news section shortly.
