Who is Isabelle Ekierman, who could become the first woman to head the Brussels Bar?

This is Isabelle Ekierman’s objective. From the night opening of the courthouse to the support of criminal justice, his projects are ambitious.

While 80% of law students are women, 80% of lawyers over 40 are men. They too often give up the profession because they are unable to reconcile professional life and life as a mother. Steps must be taken to change all this , insists Isabelle Ekierman, who places diversity at the heart of her campaign to reach the coveted post of president of the French order of the Brussels bar in June. She would thus become the first woman to head the lawyers of the largest bar in the country. A bar she wants more feminine, but also more social. Solidarity must be fundamental in our profession and it also involves supporting trainees with better remuneration.. Same for access to knowledge. I plead for free access to databases for all lawyers. Subscriptions to these are a luxury that too few lawyers can afford. Mutualization by the authorities of the order must be able to be negotiated.”
