The School of Law and the Centres for Disability Studies and Law and Social Justice are delighted to invite you to the rescheduled Caroline Gooding Memorial Disability Law Lecture 2020.
A pioneering campaigner and adviser on disability rights, with a particular focus on independent living and equality. Baroness Jane Campbell will reflect on the impact of the Coronavirus Crisis on disabled people in the UK and on implications for disability rights.
Following Baroness Campbell’s talk, there will be an opportunity to ask questions. The event will conclude with the awarding of a number of Disability Law student prizes linked to the Caroline Gooding Memorial Fund.
The event is in memory of the role of Caroline Gooding (1959-2014) in conceptualising a rights-based framework of disability equality legislation in Britain, in pursuing the development of that framework into legislation and in developing and leading work to help ensure its enforcement. It is funded by the School of Law at the University of Leeds and hosted jointly by the University’s Centre for Disability Studies and the School of Law’s Centre for Law and Justice.
The event will take place via Zoom, register now via eventbrite.
