Hi there. Sorry this might be a weird question, but i want to work in the legal field, however I have dyslexia and want to know if anyone out there is finding it difficult working in the legal field? I am working in personal injury as a litigation legal assistant and I'm finding it difficult, is there anyone who feels the same? Can you let me know if property law or wills and probate can be less complicated compared to personal injury? I want to work in property law and qualify as licensed conveyancer. Thanks Please let me know

You have to sort out your confusions as they will lead you to same condition even if you change your area from personal injury to something else... Complexities are normally offered to those who have the ability to solve them so keep your focus on solving them.

Jazmine91 I don't have experience with dyslexia, but there's a great organisation called City Disabilities (google it and you should find the website) that pairs people with certain conditions with mentors who have similar conditions and can provide advice. They cover all sorts of careers, but I know that they have a lot of lawyers who sign up to be mentors. Hope this helps!

Unfortunately, I don’t think there is much you can do to make it easier for you at a personal injury law office. I work at one and there are so many documents, deadlines, and everything else, it’s really difficult with dyslexia. I think, just like with any other job and this condition, you’ve just got to try your best and not give up. I’m rooting for you! Hang in there! Plus, once you’ve been there for a while, make sure your law firm know that you have this condition. That way you protect your employment. They can’t fire you from a personal injury law firm just because you have a disability. Plus, if they’re really good attorneys, they wouldn’t want to. – source:
