The panel includes Rachael Wallace, a law graduate and PhD researcher at the University of Dundee, Lois Ratcliffe, Programme Manager at Inclusion Scotland and Elizabeth Rose, an accredited medical negligence specialist lawyer and founder of L&M MediLaw.

The most recent figures from the Law Society of Scotland revealed that 4.8% of members have disclosed they have a disability or a chronic health condition.

Tune in to hear the panel discuss the barriers that disabled solicitors, trainees and legal support staff face and what legal sector employers can do to help to improve accessibility.
