In a new episode of Thomson Reuters Legal UK & Ireland’s podcast series, The Hearing – the host, lawyer and social media commentator, Kevin Poulter, speaks to barrister Robin White.
White was the first barrister to transition from male to female while in practice at the employment and discrimination bar. They discuss White’s early life and career, and how dealing with personal discrimination in her late twenties became a catalyst for a career change into law.
Now specialising in transgender rights, White offers a candid insight into her experience. She discusses the current issues that surround gender-transformation, as well as general workplace and social discrimination in Britain today.

Hosted by Kevin Poulter, The Hearing is sometimes serious, sometimes irreverent but always an informative, insightful and entertaining conversation. Find out more here.
