WEBSITE ACCESSIBILITY

Accessibility standards

Gowling WLG is committed to ensuring that the pages within this website are accessible to everyone. During the development of the website we have undertaken to conform to level AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0. These guidelines are the internationally recognised benchmark for building accessible websites.

In applying the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, this site will conform to the W3C standards for HTML and CSS. The standards are being applied so that our use of these technologies throughout the site supports accessibility.

In addition, this website uses JavaScript. Technically, the website works without it. However, if you do not have JavaScript enabled or supported there are carousels that will not work and it will be necessary to use the 'View all' link to see everything on one page.
