Biographical Details

Rachel joined the Law School in 2005 having previously practiced as a solicitor specialising in employment and discrimination law. Her PhD (2015) explores the legal justification of age discrimination in health care and challenges the arguments that age is 'different' from other characteristics protected by equality legislation. Her research interests also include policy and legislation governing carers in the workplace.

Rachel is the UK gender equality law expert for the European Equality in Law Network - a network of legal experts from 35 countries providing information to the European Commission on gender equality and non-discrimination issues.
