A1 : Sexism in the legal profession: time’s up

A global survey of the legal profession in 135 countries confirms what many already knew: that sexual harassment and bullying are rife in law firms and courts. A spotlight has been cast on this dark corner of our profession by highly publicized independent investigations into sexual harassment of female law students at an established New Zealand law firm and of young female associates by an Australian High Court judge. How do law firms and courts prevent these behaviours, and—when prevention fails—do they provide safe channels for reporting? These and other questions will be addressed with perspectives from around the Commonwealth.
