raised of £500 target by 6 supporters

    Weʼve raised £150 to kickstart the Society for Computers & Law bursary scheme to help people with disabilities train for a career in law

    Funded on Friday, 31st July 2020

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    The picture you can see above is of Haben Girma, the first deaf blind graduate of Harvard Law School. She is now a globally renowned advocate for disability rights. She is shown presenting the Society for Computers & Law annual lecture in 2019 where she dazzled the audience with her powerful and witty talk on why we should ensure that technology is accessible to all - as it says in the slide 'disability drives innovation'. You can watch the whole talk on the website.

    Inspired by her message, the SCL is launching a bursary scheme to help people with disabilities train for a career in law.

    UPDATE 20 March 2020

    We both finished the Half Marathon on 15 March 2020. 1h 48 for me and 2h 11 for Helen. Thanks for all who have supported us so far.

    The SCL is an educational charity - read more on their website.
