Different Abilities Group

SDCBA Different Abilities Group

The DAG exists to bring SDCBA members together who are interested in disability rights issues, or who have disabilities, to foster collaboration, professionalism, and creation of new relations and community.  The group will strive to raise in the legal community awareness of issues facing those with disabilities, and to emphasize the necessity for accommodation. Further outreach to groups includes but is not limited to schools of all educational levels, local community organizations, employers, potential clients, and MCLE. The focus is to promote law as a viable career choice for those with disabilities, and to bring appropriate awareness and accommodation when working with an individual who has a disability.
