In honor of Disability Employment Awareness Month, the Institute for Inclusion in the Legal Profession (“IILP”) is pleased to present this webinar in which they will explore:

  • Who is protected under the ADA (it may be you!)
  • Disability etiquette and how to avoid being insensitive or offensive to people with disabilities.
  • The tools and resources that enable people with disabilities to perform their jobs within the legal profession.
  • The ways in which employers in the legal profession are addressing disability diversity to gain competitive advantages.
