In this episode I chat with Sarah Alderson from PocketLegal about her ten years in practice in New Zealand and Australia, including how she went about finding jobs throughout, leading to her recent move to establish her CPD and networking business. It was so lovely to talk about finding fit and non-formulaic ways through one's career, and how she is going about improving the experience of legal practice for New Zealand lawyers now.
In this episode Sacha Judd, a lawyer for 20 years turned innovation and technology advisor, talks technology law, non-linear career choices, and the systemic nature of legal culture, not to mention practice in Hong Kong and Singapore, study at LSE, and partnership at 32. No introduction needed!

In this episode I spoke to Cassandra Kenworthy, a junior barrister from Wellington, about almost everything in the world.

I'm such a fan.
