18 July 2022 By Lawyers Weekly

If the conversations Lawyers Weekly is having with the next generation of legal professionals are anything to go by, Australia’s legal sector is in safe hands. Here are the most downloaded episodes of The Protégé Podcast so far in 2022.

As reported late last week, The Lawyers Weekly Podcast Network is growing at an exponential rate, going from an average of 30,000 downloads per month in 2021 to over 50,000 per month.


Earlier this week, Lawyers Weekly also reported that The Lawyers Weekly Podcast Network has surpassed 1 million downloads since the channel’s inception, and also ranked the most-downloaded episode for 2022 thus far.

Lawyers Weekly director William Magee said: “It’s amazing to see the podcast grow from strength to strength. It really has been the quiet achiever here for the last number of years, each month incrementally growing to now being at the point where we’re regularly receiving over 50,000 downloads per month — considering that there’s a little over 100,000 people working in legal services in this country, it speaks volumes as to its success.
