We are delighted to announce Natasha Shotunde was a finalist for Barrister of the Year at the Inspirational Women in Law Awards 2023.
The Annual Inspirational Women in Law Awards from Next 100 Years seek to identify individuals from across the legal profession who are leading the way in improving equality and diversity. The Inspirational Women in Law Awards recognise those who are both excelling in their areas of practice and are working for the changes needed to ensure women working in the law are able to thrive.
In their 8th edition, this year, the celebration of the award winners was framed by a celebration of the achievements of all those who continue to be role models in the legal profession. 'The Barrister of the Year' Award recognises a female Barrister who has shown great dedication to achieving equality for women in law, whether through their own excellent practice or through their commitment to increasing diversity outside of their practice.
