Identify an area of discrimination faced by different social groups
You are expected to choose a social group (such as the elderly, young people, asylum seekers, women, disabled children etc.) and identify an area of discrimination faced by your chosen group.
You will then need to research the relevant legislation, which covers this area of discrimination as well as case law, evidencing how these laws are applied in practice. For example, young Black men are a social group, and an area of discrimination they face could be ‘stop and search’. The Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 is a relevant legislation and the case of R (on the application of Roberts) (Appellant) v Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis and another (Respondents)  UKSC 79 is an example of case law.
