Lucy Chapple

Many professionals doubt their abilities and fear that they are not as competent as others perceive them to be–a phenomenon known as ‘impostor syndrome’.

In this webcast, Lucy Chapple draws from her recent research into imposter syndrome and her experience as a lawyer to explain the characteristics and drivers of impostor syndrome. Lucy also provides some practical strategies for tackling imposter syndrome for those working in legal practice.
