What We Do


The ADL is represented on the BSB Taskforce, which is intended to be a practical, action-orientated taskforce that identifies priorities for the Bar and BSB in enabling disability inclusion. 

Access Adjustments

The ADL is delighted to be partnering with BDABar to address access adjustments at the Bar. Our “Acknowledge. Accept. Adjust. Access.”  campaign is aimed at adjusting the Bar to access and keep disabled talent. 

Membership and the Disability in Law Newsletter and Forum

One benefit is our Disability in Law Newsletter, which brings to members exclusive opportunities with unique content and support.

The Disability in Law Forum for members is a platform on which you can join a supportive group of disabled lawyers. The Forum is an opportunity to share stories and influence our work. You can also build your network and friendship group.


Joining the Forum can be done on our website. Please let us know if we can help you with signing up.
