How we promote Equality & Diversity

Some areas of difference are immediately visible, but others, such as disability, are often hidden.  Some members of staff and students in the department are living with a disability or long-term health condition, even though they may not use this language to describe themselves.  That may include people living with chronic conditions such as diabetes or arthritis, musculoskeletal issues, mental health issues or specific learning differences such as dyslexia.  The department is committed to supporting members of staff and students living with a disability or long-term health condition.  We encourage people to discuss any need they may have for ‘reasonable adjustments’ or any other support.  Advice is available within the University: for students from the Disability Advisory Service, and for staff from the Staff Disability Advisor and the Occupational Health Service.

The disability lead for the Faculty of Law is Emma Gascoigne.
