If you work in student care or orientation services, whatever the University, and you are interested in this project, we want to meet you. Get in touch with the group coordinator, Emilia Malacalza.
This working group is made up of a series of professionals who agreed on the need to develop adequate lines of action for the incorporation, integration and development of people with disabilities in law firms.
After the publication of the Good Practice Guide for the incorporation and professional development of people with disabilities in law firms last June, we continue the work sessions en Fide, with the offices that made up the Guide together with the new firms that have signed it.
The activity of this course 2021 2022 has focused on building an effective bridge between the URJC and law firms for performing traineeships by the students.
We have held joint work sessions to design content, activities, coaching sessions.
The result has been a success. And above all, it can be applied in more offices, legal advice companies and other institutions.
