Nirav Shah is at Nottingham Trent University, studying a graduate diploma in law. He has congenital muscular dystrophy and uses a wheelchair.
He's doing the three-year course in just nine months. He feels passionately about disability rights and hopes to practise in this area once he's qualified.
We asked him for his thoughts on a recognised day for people with disabilities.
