Why are disabled people ‘unexpected’ in the legal profession? What does this mean for disabled legal professionals and for employers seeking to recruit and retain talent?
The Career Experiences of Disabled People in the Legal Profession: Future Strategies for Inclusion and Change
We will launch our research findings and recommendations on the 24th January 2020 at the British Academy in London. A future event will be based in Cardiff (date TBC).
This conference reports findings and recommendations from the ‘Legally Disabled?’ project, the first research of its kind to examine the career experiences of disabled people working in the legal profession in England and Wales. This ground-breaking project, the outcome of a two-year partnership between disabled academics and disabled people in the legal profession, led by Cardiff University, prioritised the traditionally marginalised ‘voices’ of disabled people in order to influence meaningful change to culture and practice in the profession.
The format of the conference will include a series of participative workshops in the afternoon aimed at harnessing the expertise of the different stakeholders attending.
Join us to explore what employers, networks, professional bodies and regulators can do to improve inclusion and opportunities for disabled people across the legal profession.
Spaces are limited, tickets must be booked.
