Lawyers, Lead On: Lawyers with Disabilities Share Their Insights
ABA Comm. on Mental & Physical Disability Law, 2011.
Lawyers, Lead On presents letters from lawyers with disabilities ranging from visible to non-apparent disabilities who work in a wide variety of practice settings, including with private law firms of all sizes, government agencies, corporations, and public interest organizations. The letters are organized by the major subject areas they address: the transition to law school, disability and disclosure, disability identity, the foundation of a meaningful career, awareness-building in the profession, and reflections on the disability rights movement. Intended as the superb advice they are for law students and lawyers with disabilities, the collection of letters also provides compelling insights for career counselors and recruiters of lawyers — and for anyone who wants to better understand the experiences of persons with disabilities.
