Inspiring and motivational lawyer Grace Rose Gwynne is one of the youngest barristers in the UK, after being called to the Bar at just 21 years old.
The young inspiring lawyer, TV broadcaster, commentator and TedTalk speaker regularly appears on primetime TV, radio shows and podcasts.
Twenty-six year old Grace was propelled into the public eye after speaking out about the sexism and ageism challenges she faces on a daily basis at the Bar.
A video about the bias she encounters recently went viral on Instagram.
Grace is advocating for more female representation at the Bar following the prejudices she has experienced as a young female junior barrister working in a male-dominated profession.
She was the first person in her family to go to University, was not Oxbridge educated and had to battle for a place in one of the most competitive professions in the world - and now works for one of the leading Chambers in the country,
Grace is now writing a book about life at the Bar as a young barrister to try to encourage and inspire other young women to become barristers too. The book will talk about her journey to gain pupillage and tenancy and she talks candidly about the drive, tenacity, ambition and motivation that is required to achieve your goal and be the best of the best.
Prior to embarking on a career in Law, Grace had a previous career in Performing Arts, having spent twelve years touring around the United Kingdom in productions such as ‘Scrooge’ and ‘Joseph and His Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat’. Grace has also appeared in Coronation Street and Emmerdale.
