In recognition of October as National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM), Cleveland-Marshall College of Law is delighted to have alum Gary Norman (’00) speak on his experience as a lawyer with a disability and challenges that one may encounter. As the legal profession still has a significant underrepresentation of lawyers with disabilities, Mr. Norman has achieved extraordinary success in the legal profession and is a model for the importance of inclusion of people with disabilities in our legal system. It is the hope by sharing his personal experiences, Mr. Norman will help law students with disabilities recognize their value in this field as well as encourage non-disabled students to realize the importance of supporting their fellow colleagues with disabilities as allies which comes by education and awareness. It is further hoped that all members of the law school community will support and encourage members of the community with disabilities in the law school community for the value their gifts, talents, and presence add to diversity within the law school and to the greater society.
