Bar Council Event – Disability
Disability: 1 in 8…creating more accessible and inclusive chambers
1st December 2021
17:00 – 18:30
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.
Faisal Sadiq (Gatehouse Chambers) provides an overview of the Bar Council’s Disability Panel’s work including support available for barristers and chambers.
The Business Disability Forum outlines resources available to the Bar.
Speakers from chambers discuss their experience of upskilling on disability.
Panel Q&A – reasonable adjustments and access: from compliance to good practice.
Final comments from Faisal Sadiq.
