About the session

In this free session, we will outline the benefits of acquiring accreditation (as Disability Confident), explain what is involved and offer those attending an opportunity to participate in a pilot programme that provides tailored advice and support.

We will also introduce AccessAble, an innovative platform (currently used by 7BR) that provides high quality access information about chambers – not only supporting anyone with a disability, but also sending a powerful message about your commitment to inclusion.

There will be an opportunity to ask questions and discuss issues relating to disability at the Bar.

Who is the session for?

Self-employed barristers or those with a responsibility to make reasonable adjustments; Equality and Diversity Officers; practice managers/clerks; heads of pupillage; members of disability networks (both barristers and students); and, any barristers with an interest in disability issues.
