    Law as a Tool for Change // Janvi Patel - Female Founder, Entrepreneur, Producer and Activist for Women and Children's Rights

    "I realised that as much as I can advise on the law, I can also change it" summarises the essence of this conversation with the wonderful Janvi Patel; an entrepreneur, female founder, producer and an activist for women and children’s rights. These titles (expanded on below) only scratch the surface of Janvi’s accomplishments and pioneering path!

    One thing that really stood out to me about Janvi is that when she sees a problem she doesn't just stop there, her problem solving nature and visionary spirit enables her to create and find solutions. Read below for more and tune in.

    Leadership and Law with a Roar // Vanessa Challess - Founder & Principal of Tiger Law

    Leadership and Law with a Roar // Vanessa Challess - Founder & Principal of Tiger Law

    "Don't be bland...you can't please everyone" -- Join me in this conversation with Vanessa Challess, Founder and Principal and the force behind of Tiger Law and its sister businesses Tiger Bytes and Tiger HR - force being the operative word here as Vanessa has such passionate and motivating energy! Vanessa is not afraid to speak what is on her heart and mind which makes for a very real and open conversation. We dive into a number of topics such a female inequality in law, integrity as a lawyer and what it means to be a real leader.

    You will hear about Vanessa's journey to becoming a lawyer which, after quitting school at 15, wasn't a conventional path (which sums up Vanessa in general and her uniquely inspiring ways), her experiences in private practice (including inequalities faced as a woman in law, amongst other things) which very much fuelled Vanessa's desire to create her own business and do law on her own terms.

    Vanessa's leadership style, which we dive into and unpack, is aptly captured by the name 'Tiger Law' - what really stood out to me is how passionately protective and caring Vanessa is over her staff; nurturing their talents and gifts, encouraging them to be themselves and having their backs was something that came through to me strongly.

    Beyond Yoga For Lawyers // Aman Costigan - Lawyer (Partner), Yoga Teacher + Investor

    Beyond Yoga For Lawyers // Aman Costigan - Lawyer (Partner), Yoga Teacher + Investor

    We are joined by Aman Costigan; lawyer, partner, yoga teacher, entrepreneur and investor.

    Aman founded Beyond Yoga for Lawyers (which she runs on the side of being a lawyer/partner) following a desire to create her own business “I just wanted to do my own thing with no rules”.

    Aman is 9 years qualified and a partner at her firm. As a proud and successful lawyer, she focused solely on her legal career for the first 5 years, but at year 6 something else was calling her, so she decided to take stock of things and asked herself ‘what do I really want’? Aman realised that in creating her legal career, she had dropped all of her hobbies and interests and, as a naturally multifaceted and multi passionate person, this didn’t align with version of success. So, Aman made a decision to follow that calling, own her non-linear nature and step out as a lawyer “and”…..

    Aman is a successful lawyer AND so much more, including a yoga teacher and entrepreneur. It is admirable to see how she is owning this and in doing so is giving a much needed permission slip to other lawyers and professionals. I also love how as a lawyer/partner at her firm she does things differently – one thing that stood out to me was the vision boarding session she ran aka ‘the vision board party’.

    It’s no surprise that Aman is a Manifesting Generator in Human Design – something we delved into in the episode if you’re curious to find out more.

    Tune in to hear about Aman’s process in creating Beyond Yoga for Lawyers and how she is ‘Legally Different’ in so many ways.

    Creative Thinking in Law // Eimear McCann - Legal Tech Director and Law Lecturer

    Creative Thinking in Law // Eimear McCann - Legal Tech Director and Law Lecturer

    Eimear has certainly had a multi-faceted and non-linear path into and around law, which you will hear all about! From her early career as a writer to working in immigration law for a law centre to private practice to legal tech.
    When Eimear began to feel stuck in private practice and craved a way out into something else, without anything on the table, her solution was “I’m just going to have to get really creative about how I get out of this” which I love – you will see that creativity is a common theme in Eimear’s journey and is something she is so passionate about in law. At this juncture, Eimear began by stripping out of the legal references in her CV to reimagine her experience – love this tip for getting a new perspective on experience, skills and purpose! That's a little taste of what you can expect in this conversation, which very much dives into the intersection between creativity and logic.

Big fan!

I am such a huge fan of this podcast! Inspiring, super creative and such a breath of fresh air for the legal industry. As a legal business owner, it’s amazing to know I’m not in it alone - and that there are lots of other people out there doing legal, differently!!
