LCL Embracing Neurodiversity in the Legal Practice: Thriving as a Neurodivergent Lawyer [Panel Discussion]

May 9 @ 4:00 pm - 5:15 pm

Co-sponsored by:

Boston Bar Association Committee for Attorneys with Disabilities

Hispanic National Bar Association (HNBA) Attorneys with Disabilities and their Allies Section

The legal profession is known for its demanding nature, requiring meticulous attention to detail, strong analytical skills, and the ability to think quickly on your feet. While these qualities aid in success, at times they can also pose challenges for neurodivergent individuals, who may think, learn, and process information differently. In addition to challenges, neurodiversity also presents advantages that neurotypical individuals might lack. Neurodiversity refers to the spectrum of human brain function and some examples include ADHD, autism spectrum, dyslexia, and dyspraxia.

Join us for an illuminating panel discussion on embracing neurodiversity in the legal profession. Our panel of neurodivergent lawyers will delve into their unique experiences navigating the legal landscape.

We aim to foster a deeper understanding of neurodiversity and its intricacies and explore strategies to break down barriers, emphasize strengths, and be successful as a neurodivergent lawyer. Also, learn practical tips for having conversations about neurodiversity within your workplace and explore concerns around self-disclosure.
