Life and diversity at the Bar with Oscar Davies

Humans of Law Podcast

Oscar Davies, barrister at Lamb Chambers, smiles as they think about the Humans of Law podcast produced by Flex Legal

Oscar Davies is a practicing barrister at Lamb Chambers, with a broad practice area covering areas such as commercial, employment, property, and much more. Oscar made headlines last year when they became the UK's first barrister to publicly identify as non-binary, and use the gender neutral “Mx” as an honorific at their chambers. Since then, Oscar has become something of an LGBT+ legal icon, and was recently named in the British LGBT Awards as making a Top 10 Outstanding Contribution to LGBT+ Life.

Louise Anderson has a thought-provoking discussion with Oscar, which covers Oscar's journey to the Bar, the manic reality of life as a practising barrister, why legal TV shows often aren't the best representation of legal work, and the steadily improving diversity within the wider legal sector.

This episode is also available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and all good podcasting platforms.
