A civil liberties activist, Yara, whose background involves working for trade unions and non-governmental organisations, as well as teaching at Edinburgh Law School, is committed to ensuring the Equality Act is upheld through her work with Broudie Jackson Canter.
She said: “I’m incredibly passionate about raising the awareness of accessing justice among those who have experienced discrimination. As part of our work at Broudie Jackson Canter, we strive to break down financial barriers through our Legal Aid offering.
“The charity is committed to promoting equality and I look forward to working with like-minded individuals on the board to help achieve this goal.”
In keeping with Broudie Jackson Canter’s commitment to making a positive difference to people’s lives, Yara will be involved in writing equality case law updates, hosting events and organising the DLA’s annual conference.
