New Zealand : Lawyers invited to participate in international bullying and sexual harassment survey.

The International Bar Association (IBA) has launched an international survey on bullying and sexual harassment in the legal profession.

The survey - in which all responses are anonymous - is being administered for the IBA by Acritas Research Ltd, which will process responses and pass aggregated results to the IBA.

The survey takes 10 to 15 minutes to complete and is available here. Note that a new link is needed every time someone completes the survey.

The IBA Legal Policy & Research Unit says its 2017 Women in Commercial Legal Practice Report revealed startling rates of bullying and sexual harassment in the profession.

"Subsequently, the IBA LPRU resolved to undertake a new survey to establish an empirical understanding of the nature and prevalence of such conduct. The findings of this survey will feature in a report providing recommendations for legal workplaces regarding their policies, training and incident response systems," it says.

"It is hoped that the report will contribute to the broader cultural shift in workplace attitudes towards bullying and sexual harassment."
