Careers at The Bar Lawyers Working with Disability

12/10/2021

Inclusion and Diversity

Practising as a barrister is intellectually engaging, endlessly varied, meaningful and valuable work. Life at the Bar offers a very different way to work than found in most law firms and in-house positions. Barristers in private practice are required to be sole practitioners and we manage our practices independently but also work collaboratively in many ways. Did you know that barristers can also practice in public service roles?

If you are working with disability, you may find practice at the Bar can be tailored to better suit you. Find out more about what about the Bar works well for lawyers working with disability, what is still a work-in-progress and what the Bar is doing to improve accessibility.

On Tuesday 26 October, at 5.15 pm, join Valerie Heath (Maurice Byers Chambers), Nipa Dewan (Second Floor Selborne Chambers) and Matt Cobb-Clark (Level 22 Chambers) from the NSW Bar Association’s Accessibility Panel to explore what a career at the Bar looks like and what support is available for lawyers working with disability.

This webinar is open to everyone but primarily aimed at students and young professionals considering a career at the Bar. We encourage members to share the event with friends and colleagues. For further information or to register for the event, please click here
