Modern slavery seminar: 14th July 2016

Compensation for victims of modern slavery: where do we go from here?

Date: Thursday 14th July, 5.30pm – 7.45pm
Location: 7 Bedford Row, London WC1R 4BS

In the same week that Brexit threatened to deprive UK trafficking victims of the protection offered by EU law, the Supreme Court’s landmark judgment in Onu v Akwiwu and Taiwo v Olaigbe held that mistreatment on the grounds of migrant status does not constitute race discrimination.

7BR Chambers and the specialist legal charity Anti Trafficking & Labour Exploitation Unit (ATLEU) are hosting a seminar, with leading expert speakers, including those instructed on the case, to discuss the implications of the judgment and recent events for future claims and developments in this area of law.

Speaker sessions:

Onu and Taiwo – the implications for discrimination law
Elaine Banton, Specialist Discrimination Barrister at 7BR

Claims for victims of forced labour and human trafficking: Taiwo, Onu and Brexit; where do we go from here?
James Robottom, Barrister at 7BR and Counsel for Ms Onu

Panel discussion
With Jamila Duncan Bosu, founding member of ATLEU – the leading charity providing legal representation to victims of trafficking

Chair: Jeffrey Jupp, Head of 7BR Employment
