This GFSL seminar will take place on 22 February at 3.30pm in Room 132 of the Gilbert Scott Building.

Amanda Wyper (University of Edinburgh) will present on 'Pensions and Private Law'.

Pensions policy in the UK has undergone significant change in recent years imposing responsibilities and creating rights. There has been a move from public to private responsibility for pensions and increasingly this means that individuals bear the investment and other risks associated with saving for retirement. This paper will consider the interaction between pensions policy legislation and private law rights, particularly for those who believe they have not benefitted from the policy change.
