As the first deafblind person to graduate Harvard, Haben Girma understands limitations for people with disabilities in the legal profession. In her TEDx talk in Baltimore, Haben Girma asked a question that a lot of people with disabilities ask themselves: do I accept the limitations and challenges set before me or do I do something about it? As well as being the first deafblind person to graduate from Harvard, Haben actively works to increase accessibility for disabled people in the legal profession. In this On the Road report from the 2017 Clio Cloud conference, host Rian Gauvreau talks to Haben Girma about how to increase accessibility in websites, applications, education, and law firms. She discusses how technology innovations are helping those with disabilities and her most frustrating and rewarding experiences as an advocate and lawyer.
