Restoring access to justice to Equality Claimants

Following a meeting with the Head of Civil Litigation, Funding and Costs at the Ministry of Justice last month at which Chris Fry presented the case for extending the costs protection available in personal injury claims to equality discrimination cases, we have now filed our formal submission.

Application of costs protection (known as Qualified One Way Costs Shifting) to discrimination cases will mean that those trying to fight direct discriminsation will only face legal fees in execptional circumstances. This would allow many more cases to be brought, and lead to the greatest leap forwards to inclusion in decades. To read more about our submission please follow this link:
