Foster of Cardiff University Business School and independent researcher Dr
Natasha Hirst are conducting groundbreaking research into the experiences of
disabled people in the legal profession. The independent research is funded by
DRILL (Disability Research into Independent Living and Learning), which
delivers the world’s first major research programme led by disabled people.
The project is seeking disabled legal professionals from England and Wales for one-to-one interviews. Researchers are keen to speak to people with impairments or long term health conditions who are working in, or seeking work in the legal profession, and those who have since retired or left.
The researchers can be contacted on email@example.com
More information on the project and the funder can be found online:
Initial findings from focus groups of disabled legal professionals highlight a mixed bag of experiences:
The researchers work
in co-production with the Lawyers with Disabilities Division of The Law Society
and a Research Reference Group consisting of disabled people from across the
legal profession. Co-production ensures that disabled legal professionals are
able to identify priorities and shape the design of the research.
