International Women’s Day: Using the law to protect women’s rights and where the law can go further

Date: 9 March 2022

About the event

To celebrate International Women’s Day 2022, barristers from Field Court Chambers considered a hybrid case study with the audience. Our aim was to highlight how the law deals with gendered issues and, crucially, where it can go further.

The case study traversed gendered issues from an employment, public, and housing law perspective. It followed Ayesha, a marketing executive facing issues in the context of her employment, her home, and welfare benefits.

This interactive event was intended for students, aspiring barristers, solicitors, barristers, and anyone interested in using the law to enhance greater equality.

Our barristers guided us through the potential claims Ayesha may be able to bring in the courts of England and Wales, as well as other non-legal action Ayesha could take.
