The Boutique Lawyer Show: ‘There is room for everybody in this profession’

Law can be an elitist profession. Socioeconomic diversity can put some practitioners at a disadvantage in building relationships in a profession in which one’s network is one’s net worth.

In this episode of The Boutique Lawyer Show, host Jerome Doraisamy speaks with Emplawyer managing principal Michelle Dawson, who won the employment category at the 2023 Partner of the Year Awards, about the effects of socioeconomic disparity on lawyers’ careers, and the need for broader recognition and opportunity.

Ms Dawson details her personal and professional experiences, outlines the practical steps she has taken to succeed and offers her guidance, both for individuals and the broader profession, to address socioeconomic diversity as part of broader diversity and inclusion efforts profession-wide.
