The Hearing: Season 2, Episode 17, with Millicent Grant

In episode 17 of Thomson Reuters Legal UK & Ireland’s podcast series, The Hearing, host Kevin Poulter speaks with Millicent Grant, Past President of CILEx.

Throughout an inspiring conversation, Grant discusses her unconventional career journey, which was inspired by a photo of her uncle in his barrister’s cloak and wig. It first led to her attending secretarial college, on to becoming a legal executive, and then later eventually becoming the first female and first black president of CILEx.
