  • I agree they haven't quite worked. It's a shame as it is so important for the legal profession to get the best brains regardless of any other irrelevant details.

  • Disability diversity never seems to get a mention! There is, technically, always a "commitment" but if the stats are looked at (+ they seldom are) they're abysmal. I worked in a "leading" city law firm + was the only "out" disabled person there so the percentage was prob 0.????
    Just imagine those stats re any other diversity issue????!!!!

  • Ref Anon 9/7 @ 4.50pm - I agree entirely. The number of 'out' disabled at our outfit is in single figures. That's out of well over 2,000. My own experience at more than one law firm outwardly committed to the issue is that it is sink or swim. I suppose it is far easier to be seen to be doing something about LBGT and racial etc diversity. Mind you, having been contacted only once in the last 4 years by the Law Soc disability group it's no real surprise. How many readers know it even exists?
