To celebrate Black History Month, The Law Society LGBT+ Lawyers Division committee member Nimmisha Aslam was joined by Yetunde Dania and Isaac Eloi to discuss the experiences of black LBGT+/ally members of the legal profession.

In part one of this podcast, Yetunde and Isaac tell Nimmisha about their background, education and what led them to pursue a career in the legal profession.

They also talk about some of the difficulties they faced along the way and the importance of role models.

Part two will follow later this month!

  • Yetunde Dania, partner at Trowers & Hamlin LLP
  • Isaac Eloi, trainee solicitor at Freeths LLP

Part one of the podcast is available to listen to via The Law Society website.
