Are you a disabled person, or someone with a long-term medical condition working in, aspiring to work in (e.g. in training), or retired from the legal profession? If so, this questionnaire is for you!


Cardiff Business School are pleased to launch the next stage of research with a questionnaire for disabled people training for or working as solicitors and paralegals. This also includes those who have since left these roles in the profession.

A separate questionnaire for Barristers is being finalised and will be launched shortly. This is due to the very different qualification routes and workplace experiences.

The purpose of the research is to produce the first large scale evidence base on the career experiences of disabled people across the legal profession. This will build on and quantify the evidence obtained from one to one interviews.

Click here to fill in the questionnaire for solicitors and paralegals.

EXTENDED DEADLINE 7th JULY!

We anticipate that it will take approximately 20 minutes to complete the questionnaire. It can also be saved part way and finished off later. You have the option to skip questions or answer ‘not applicable’ as appropriate to you.

If you have any queries or require the questionnaire in a word document or other accessible format please get in touch with Dr Natasha Hirst on HirstN2@cardiff.ac.uk

Please share widely through your networks and on social media. Not all disabled people will necessarily disclose to employers or colleagues so please promote this questionnaire on your general lists to give as many people as possible an opportunity to participate.
Please note that both researchers are part-time on the project and will respond as soon as possible to any queries.

Many thanks,
Natasha
