Dr Michael Connolly
I teach and supervise UG and PG students, and welcome PhD proposals in the areas of equality and discrimination law, or contract, consumer and commercial law.
I also serve on the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Committee of the Society of Legal Scholars, and the London Management Committee of the Commonwealth Legal Education Association.
My principal research interest is in Discrimination and Equality law, especially the employment discrimination laws of the United Kingdom, the European Union, the United States, South Africa, Canada, and Australasia. I speak regularly on this subject in Britain and the United States. I have published many papers on the comparative discrimination law and written several books on the subject. (For some recent publications, see the 'Outputs' section.) My latest book, Equality, Discrimination, and the Law (2022, Routledge) is out now. This follows The English Judiciary, Discrimination Law and Statutory Interpretation: Easy Cases making Bad Law’ (2018, Routledge). I hope to produce a third edition of my textbook Discrimination Law (2011, Sweet & Maxwell) in due course.
