The Faculty of Law fully supports the University’s policy to commit, in its pursuit of academic excellence, to equality of opportunity and to a pro-active and inclusive approach to equality, which supports and encourages all under-represented groups, promotes an inclusive culture, and values diversity.

Subject to statutory provisions, no student, member of staff, applicant for admission as a student, or applicant for appointment as a member of staff will be treated less favourably than another because of her or his belonging to a protected group.

Protected groups are defined in the Equality Act 2010 as sex, gender reassignment, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy or maternity, race (including ethnic or national origin, nationality or colour), disability, sexual orientation, age, or religion or belief.

If any person admitted as a student or appointed as a member of staff considers that he or she is suffering from unlawful discrimination, harassment, or victimisation in her or his admission, appointment, or progression through the University because of belonging to any of the above protected groups, he or she may make a complaint, which will be dealt with through the agreed procedures for complaints or grievances or the procedures for dealing with bullying and harassment as appropriate.
