The Law Room
Some of the things that happen to the people who are a part of this exhibition happen legally, some of what happens isn't legal. Often institutions behave in a way that fails to recognise and respect the legal rights and protections of autistic people and people with learning disabilities or difficulties. We believe that raising awareness of peoples' rights can play an important role in ensuring that the law is properly enforced and people are protected from the misuse of power.
So in "The Legal Room" we invite legal bloggers and practitioners to share their knowledge and experience of legislation, case law and practice so that we might all together promote the Rightfullives of autistic people and people with learning disabilities or difficulties.
