Extract from amazon review: By P. C. Langman on 6 April 2014: “a very readable account of the law on disability discrimination and litigation case management. The practical experience of the authors in applying the law shines through … suitable for legal practitioners, students and lay readers alike. I would strongly recommend to anyone contemplating bringing a disability claim before a tribunal… This is still the best book I’ve read putting together the law with employment tribunal practice.”
