Do dyslexic law students stand less of a chance of getting an offer from a law firm?

Because dyslexia is an umbrella term covering a wide combination of abilities and difficulties, with varying degrees of dyslexia affecting different people in different ways, it is impossible to give a yes or no answer to your question. Each individual will be considered on a case-by-case basis, and success or otherwise will depend on the whole package of what you as a unique individual with unique strengths, weaknesses and experience can offer to an employer. Dyslexia as youll know is not related to intelligence or ability. It does, however, affect the processing of information, which is a key part of a lawyers role. I would strongly advise anyone interested in a career in law to make it a priority to secure work experience so that you can see what the work is like in practice, as well as showing your commitment to a potential employer. When it comes to potential employers, you will need to decide whether or not to disclose your dyslexia. If you do decide to disclose, think about when and indeed how you do this. For example, you may want to explain how in particular your dyslexia affects you (and, equally importantly, doesnt affect you), and what you do to minimise the effects, giving examples of successful outcomes. As I said at the start, at the end of the day your chance of success will depend on the whole package of you as an individual and what you can bring to the proverbial table.
