By Jerome Doraisamy|18 October 2019

On this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by barrister and chair of the Law Council of Australia’s equal opportunity committee, Kate Eastman SC, to unpack the second annual Equitable Briefing Policy report, discuss reactions and reflections, and outline what those in BigLaw, in-house and other legal demographics can to do ensure that briefing practices are as equitable as possible.
