Sarah King (Court-Brown)

Thesis title:

Mapping Equality in the UK Constitution


The aim of Sarah’s thesis is to map equality within the UK constitution, against the usual view that equality is not a constitutional principle. The hypothesis behind her research is that equality plays multiple, overlapping roles within the UK constitution. Sarah aims to assist scholars and practitioners to understand equality and the UK constitution better. If her research hypothesis is proven, this may also entail the maintenance of certain equality protections as a matter of UK constitutional law going forwards, which could prove significant when the UK equality framework is reconsidered after Brexit.
