Whether you work with 10 people, hundreds or alone; in a legal aid firm, a city firm or in-house; recognizing mental health in the workplace has never been so important. We know that lawyers have higher rates of stress, anxiety and depression, when compared to others. By understanding the impact, the culture and practice of law can have on mental health, you can take steps to look after your own health and promote positive attitudes in your workplace. Lawyers are held to high standards of honesty and integrity, which can prevent them from admitting they are struggling for fear this will be a career limiting step. It is essential for good management to create a culture where staff can be open about their mental health and problems they may have with their work. Creating an open and accepting culture around mental health in the workplace will lead to greater staff productivity and retention.

Why are disabled people 'unexpected' in the legal profession? What does this mean for disabled legal professionals and for employers seeking to recruit and retain talent? This conference reports findings and recommendations from the Legally Disabled project, the first research of its kind to examine the career experiences of disabled people working in the legal profession in England and Wales. This ground-breaking project, the outcome of a two year partnership between disabled academics and disabled people in the legal profession, led by Cardiff University, prioritised the traditionally marginalised ‘voices’ of disabled people in order to influence meaningful change to culture and practice in the profession. The format of the conference will include a series of participative workshops in the afternoon aimed at harnessing the expertise of the different stakeholders attending.
