  • Webinar | Thursday 25 July 2024 | 12:30 - 13:30 | 1 Hour

    Hannah Taylor will be joined by Ulele Burnham for this session, during which we will consider some of the challenges when trying to balance the competing priorities of maximising autonomy whilst protecting vulnerable individuals in the context of sexual relations and through the prism of equality. 

    Ulele Burnham, a barrister from Doughty Street Chambers, will consider: 

    • The test for capacity to engage in sexual relations: a reminder of the “relevant information” and a review of recent case law
    • How does the “low” threshold for the test square with considerations affecting other groups protected by domestic and international equality law?
  • Please be aware that places for this seminar are limited and may get over subscribed.

    Our clients will get priority, but we will endeavour to increase capacity where we can to allow all those who wish to attend a place.

    Where we are heavily oversubscribed we will limit places per organisation.

    Registration will close at the advertised start time.
