Coffee Conversation: Ensuring Disability Inclusive Justice and Emerging Health and Wellness
Room 305: 11:15 AM to 12:30 PM
Panelists will facilitate, reflect on, and touch upon topics related to whole-body health and wellness, exploring on one hand, inclusive services to customers with disabilities within the judicial system. A system that must be more accessible, inclusive, and usable. (Such as with the emerging practice of courthouse dogs used to relieve anxiety and stress.) The panel will also address those who would practice before it with a disability who either need to dialogue on reasonable accommodations or receive strategies for managing law practice and disability on a holistic basis.
