About the session
In recent research from the Bar Council, just over 1 in 8 young barristers reported a disability. With that in mind, this practical event hosted an interactive discussion on good practice in making reasonable adjustments in a chambers context – for applicants, pupils, practising barristers and their staff. We were joined by experts on disability good practice in both the workplace and specifically in a chambers' context, outlining and discussing resources available to chambers to support inclusion with respect to disability (both visible and non-visible).
