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 hosts an interactive discussion on good practice in making reasonable adjustments in a chambers context – for applicants, pupils, practising barristers and their staff. We will be joined by experts on disability good practice in both the workplace and specifically in a chambers' context, and will outline and discuss resources available to chambers to support inclusion with respect to disability (both visible and non-visible).

Who is the session for?

Equality and Diversity Officers (EDOs), Practice Managers, clerks, Heads of Pupillage and barristers with an interest in disability issues.
