The term “intersectionality” was first coined by a lawyer. As a
move towards the post-pandemic market, adopting an intersectional
approach to legal practice will be increasingly essential for
meaningful service of one’s clients.
On this episode of The Boutique Lawyer Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Regal Lawyers principal Mannie Kaur Verma to discuss what intersectionality means in the context of legal practice, how and why such an approach is so important to Ms Kaur Verma and the barriers she has faced in life that gave rise to such an approach in law.
The pair also talk about how intersectionality pertains to the underlying altruism of legal practice, pushing back against potential scepticism to mainstream adoption of intersectional approaches to clients, how it applies in an increasingly virtual practice environment, and practical steps that lawyers and leaders can take to reposition their collaboration with clients.
