Dandi Disability Pledge

Only 5% of lawyers consider themselves to be disabled, compared to 14% of the general workforce.

Just one of the statistics that highlights the considerable underrepresentation of disabled candidates across the profession. In particular, there are certain disabilities that aspiring solicitors may perceive to affect their aspirations to become a lawyer, such as dyslexia, that we believe are significantly underrepresented and underreported compared to other disabilities.
We launched the Dandi Disability Pledge (here) during Disability History Month 2022 to raise awareness, increase representation and encourage the reporting of disabilities through a self regulating pledge that we would like firms to sign up to.
We want our pledge to be as practical and achievable as possible, by encouraging firms to make small, but meaningful changes in helping create a more inclusive recruitment and retention process for disabled candidates.
Dandi asks signatories to consider all of the points in our pledge into their firm's day to day work and activities. We intend to ask all signatories for their feedback through a questionnaire to track progress annually, every Disability History Month from 2022 onwards.
