Podcast Episode 6 - without wording

Our sixth episode of Humans of Law sees Mary talk with Barry Matthews, Founder of the Social Mobility Business Partnership.

As Founder of SMBP, Barry has arguably done more than anyone else to open doors to the legal industry for people from low-income backgrounds. His personal journey through life and into the legal industry has given him a perspective that few other senior legal professionals have. In this episode, Mary and Barry discuss that journey, and explore why opening doors to outsiders is an important step for the wider legal industry to take.
