Lawyers with Disabilities Division work experience programme

21 August 2018

The Lawyers with Disabilities Division works with employers in the legal sector to offer summer work experience opportunities to our members.

Several employers are taking part in the scheme, including Stephenson Harwood, Slaughter and May, and more.

The work experience scheme can offer you:

  • work experience for one to two weeks (part or full-time)
  • support on discussions around reasonable adjustments from LDD experts
  • paid reasonable travelling expenses

This scheme is available for applicants at any stage of their career in law, whether at student or post-qualification level. Please don't be deterred if you feel you do not have the academic criteria for this scheme.

Applications for 2019 will open in February 2019.
