Creating a disability confident workplace ensures the legal profession is accessible for practitioners and staff with disability, and can help break down barriers for disabled clients to access justice.

To celebrate International Day of People with Disability on 3 December, the Law Society’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee will bring together a panel of experts to provide practical suggestions for creating disability confident workplaces. Our panellists will draw on their own experiences, and those of their clients, as they discuss key issues and what we can do to ensure safe and inclusive environments for our colleagues and clients with disability.

This webcast will feature an Auslan interpreter.
