Access to legal services and working as a lawyer

Hi everyone,

I hope that you might be kind enough to help me with my research. I want to find out about the issues which people with disabilities face in accessing barristers' services and practising as a barrister in England and Wales. I'd be really grateful if you could please share your experiences in this discussion thread (both positive and negative experiences would be great to hear about, as well as any suggestions you have for how to make the bar more welcoming and accessible for disabled people). Please feel free to anonymise details.

Thanks a lot in advance - I really appreciate your help,

    Hi @Fiona2020 Welcome to the community and I hope you get some feedback

    I dont really have anything to share I havent had need for using a barrister. I do have an interest though in the law, I have studied employment la w and worked in HR for 30 plus years but unfortunately no longer able to work

    I am currently studying criminology and criminal psychology mainly for my own interest
