ABOUT THE EVENT

Conflicts Between Religion and Secular Rights: how far can religious groups go in seeking to alter or avoid rights and duties under English law for the purpose of upholding their faith?

Education, employment and family law are key areas where the state has power to impose standards over all UK citizens, which may conflict with religious beliefs. Standards under the Equality Act can also be imposed upon places of worship in relation to discrimination.

This panel discussion will bring together views and ideas about how legal advisers can constructively approach advising clients on these issues.
