Thomson Reuters Institute Market Insights Podcasts


Dec 5, 2019

In this podcast, Conway Ekpo, an in-house lawyer at a Wall Street bank, and Erika Stallings, an entertainment lawyer, discuss how they and 20 other seasoned black lawyers — consisting of partners, mid-level and senior associates, and in-house attorneys — realized they needed to use their knowledge and expertise to address the dearth of black lawyers in the legal industry. 

To address this gap, Ekpo and Stallings and a few others founded the Black BigLaw Pipeline (BBP) to provide younger attorneys with the skills and training needed to navigate Big Law and develop meaningful relationships that will benefit them in the long-term.
