This event is open to graduates and undergraduate students with a disability or long term condition, including but not limited to: visual and hearing impairments, mobility impairments, Asperger’s Syndrome, diabetes, epilepsy, dyslexia, dyspraxia, mental health conditions, speech impairments and major illnesses such as cancer and MS.

Ideally you will:

  • Be a first, second or final year student studying law or a non-law degree subject
  • Be studying for your LPC
  • Good academic track record; achieved, or on track to achieve a 2.1

If you have mitigating circumstances which have prevented you from achieving these grades, do inform us and we will take this into account.

The event stood out as useful and insightful because it offered practical advice and solutions to some of the barriers faced by people with a disability. It also offered aspiring lawyers the opportunity to meet professionals who had similar if not the same disability but were able to carve a successful career in the legal industry. I walked away feeling motivated and more confident!
