Benefits of writing for Anti-prejudice

Equality and Non-discrimination law spans several practice areas within public law including education law, social welfare law, human rights law, election law and immigration law. 

For aspiring practitioners who would like to practice in these or other areas, it is a chance for you to engage in written advocacy through persuasive writing. Writing for AP will require some legal research and a clear understanding of legal principles and judgments, all of which are necessary for a successful practice. It is also an opportunity to have your writing published. 

For practitioners, it is an opportunity to shed some light on this evolving area of law on a platform which narrows in on this practice area. It might also be an opportunity to comment on a case you have worked on and its impact.

Finally, you get to write about an incredibly important area of law which seeks to create a better society for us all.
