Graduates who are disabled still do not get a fair deal from law firms.In a research conducted recently, it was revealed that of the 50 companies,only 18 percent of the firms had opportunities for law students with disabilities to undergo training.

Robert Byk, graduate recruitment partner at Slaughter and May however claimed that this is a developing area and this can be improved over time. Also the research has revealed that disabled trainees,presently just account for 0.35 per cent of the firms intake. Andrew Shutter,a graduate recruitment partner at Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton had mentioned that in no way should physical disability affect the applicants who are applying.

But here was the first Law Firm Mayer Brown which tied up with EmployAbility,in July 2008 and provided the first summer vacation for law students and graduates.This 4 week summer program helps in getting recruited in leading law firms.
