This booklet considers areas of the law relating to Religious Freedom and Discrimination, which are of specific interest to Catholic institutions and individual Catholics; in particular the exemptions in Discrimination law which apply to religious organisations in England, Wales and Scotland. The author offers a helpful introductory tour of the key issues and areas to be aware of, primarily for a Catholic audience though it may well be of assistance to members of other religions and Churches since many of the legal questions are common across religious boundaries.

Neil Addison is a practising barrister and specialist in this area on which he has also published (Religious Discrimination and Hatred Law, Routledge). He is National Director of the Thomas More Legal Centre.
