Weakest Link looking for disabled lawyers!

Anyone who is stupid enough to be made a fool of by Anne Robinson, read on …

Thanks for agreeing to help to publicise auditions for the forthcoming
series of the Weakest Link. Anyone who wishes to do so can call me on 020 8225 9747 or e-mail me at jamesDOTmedhurstATbbcDOTcoDOTuk** and I will send out an application form, and these are also the contact details for any enquiries about access for either the auditions or the show itself. We do not currently have an audition schedule for the new series but we would like to receive application forms from people as soon as possible so that we can get in touch when are holding auditions in their local area.

Thanks and best wishes,

James Medhurst,
Researcher, BBC Weakest Link.

Are you a hearing solicitor, barrister, law student?

Whilst in today’s See Hear programme, there was an item about Deaf people trying to access the legal profession, are you a lawyer, and wondered how you could get involved?

If you did watch the programme today or indeed you are just reading this blawg, and are you a solicitor, barrister or law student who is interested in Deaf people’s access to the legal system? Are you interested in the term ‘Deaf Law’, and proposals to develop this?

We would like to set up a UK network, of solicitors, barristers and law students. Here, we are not identifying Deaf professionals per se, but any professional in this field who has an interest in deafness.

If this is you, please contact us, as we would like to set up an egroup in the first instance, to take this idea forward.
