The Lawyers Weekly Show has hit new heights this year, growing from an average of 30,000 downloads per month in 2021 to over 50,000 per month. Here are the most popular episodes of the last six months.

Last year, episodes of The Lawyers Weekly Show were downloaded over 300,000 times across the globe. To date, in 2022, the leading industry-specific podcast for legal professionals in Australia has been downloaded more than 367,000 times.


Speaking about the show’s rapid growth, Lawyers Weekly editor and podcast host Jerome Doraisamy said that audio-visual mediums are increasingly becoming how legal professionals will be consuming content.

This is being recognised, he noted, through the upped regularity of episodes being published: currently an average of four per week, as compared to the early days of a weekly episode.
