Edinburgh University Press

Discusses two cases: Chief Constable of West Yorkshire Police v A [2005] 1 AC 51, in which the House of Lords recognised that a transgender individual must be treated as belonging to her new gender, even without a Gender Recognition Certificate, if for particular purposes; and Re U (A Child) (Standard of Proof) [2004] 3 WLR 753 which illustrated that the same factual basis for legal action following harm caused to a child might fail to satisfy the criminal standard of proof but at the same time satisfy the civil standard of proof in child protection proceedings.

Keywords:   Gender recognition, Sex discrimination, Genuine occupational requirement, Employment as police officer, Child abuse, Standard of proof, Probability of abuse, Criminal and civil standards
