Sexual harassment

in the law


Everyone in the legal profession should expect to work in an environment that is safe and free from harassment.

There has been widespread discussion of the research relating to sexual harassment in the legal profession and the ongoing challenge with this issue. While solicitors are not unique in facing these challenges, there is a shared responsibility to address sexual harassment and other inappropriate behaviour in legal workplaces.

The Law Society of NSW has not, and will not, shy away from confronting this issue and, at an individual level, dealing with the distress that arises from sexual harassment.
