I am a Scottish Solicitor who writes about contemporary equalities and human rights issues.
- criminalising people with mental health support needs
- health inequalities between men and women
- the questionable introduction of employment tribunal fees
I have also appeared on television news, taken part in radio discussion programmes and had opinion pieces published in the national press.
I approach each article with the lay person in mind.
I try to explain the law, best practice and provide relevant external commentary to each of the topics covered purposely avoiding technical legalese.
August - reviewing the Fringe
If a performance has demonstrated a unique equalities or human rights approach, I'll write about it and publicise the show through social media, by email and word of mouth.
At the end of the Fringe, I also hope to present an award to the best performance that has demonstrated an original equalities or human rights theme.
If you wish to nominate a show for review, get in touch.
Please remember though, there has to be an Equalities or Human Rights element for me to consider a review.
To the future
As time moves on, my Blog will develop and become more of a resource for anyone with an interest in Equality or Human Rights.
I've added a search box, allowing reader to search for key words or phrases e.g., LGBT or disability.
I have also added a specific page providing links to the relevant legislation, guidance or explanatory notes.
