The sexual harassment survey has now closed

September 25, 2019

Thank you to everyone who completed our survey on sexual harassment in Victorian legal workplaces.

The survey closed at midnight on Monday, 9th of September and we were able to hear from people in all walks of the profession, from current and former lawyers to administrative staff to law students as well as other support staff working in the law.

The response to the survey has been pleasing and it indicates that sexual harassment is a topic of concern to the legal profession.

We are in the process of analysing the survey data and will be sharing the results in due course. Please continue to watch this space.

If you have any questions, or would like to report an incident, please call us on 03 9679 8001.

We have also produced a fact sheet on sexual harassment which covers our position on sexual harassment and contact details for support agencies.
