Episode 68: I. Stephanie Boyce, Deputy Vice President of The Law Society of England & Wales

Today’s guest is changing legal history: I. Stephanie Boyce is the current Deputy Vice President of the Law Society of England and Wales, and in 2021 she will become the first Black, Asian, or Minority Ethnic (BAME) person to ever serve as the Law Society’s president. (For context, the Law Society was founded in 1825.)

In this special Daily Matters episode, Stephanie talks about this remarkable accomplishment—how she persevered through career obstacles and multiple electoral defeats, and what it means to her to be in this position.

Additionally, Stephanie and Clio CEO Jack Newton discuss:

  • How George Floyd’s death and Black Lives Matter protests are influencing British society
  • The obstacles faced by women, ethnic minorities, and other underrepresented populations in the legal profession
  • How legal professionals can help make the industry more equitable for all
