The Legal Mind podcast - Neurodiversity in Law with Oliver May and Ailsa McKeon

Neurodiversity in Law

LawCare's Gemma Matthews is joined by Oliver May,  barrister at No5 Chambers, a member of the Bar Council Disability Panel, and the Vice Chair of Neurodiversity in Law and Ailsa McKeon, a barrister at 6KBW College Hill Chambers and a Champion for Neurodiversity in Law.

We talk about what we mean by neurodiversity, why neurodivergent people are more at risk of poor mental health, and what workplaces can do to be more inclusive to neurodivergent individuals.
