This will be a hybrid event, and can also be joined online from 8am.

The event will explore the impact of the cultural shift towards hybrid working on the lives of those in the legal sector with disabilities.


It will also explore how hybrid working can promote inclusion, and break down barriers.

O'Donnell will then join a panel discussion moderated by Duncan Inverarity (ALG employment law group). 

Panellists will include:

  • Dr Patricia McCarthy (TCD School of Education research fellow),
