Disability and the legal profession: a conversation with international lawyers with disabilities about creating a more inclusive profession

A webinar presented by the IBA Human Rights Institute (IBAHRI), co-hosted by the National Disabled Law Students Association, supported by the IBA Diversity and Equality Law Committee and the IBA Employment and Industrial Relations Law Committee

25 SEP 2020 1600 – 1700 BST

Individuals with disabilities constitute the largest minority group in the world, yet studies demonstrate that lawyers with disabilities rarely disclose their disability to employers. This webinar seeks to address stigma and discrimination within law schools and the legal profession, and offer tangible ways to make the legal profession more inclusive.
