IBA Harassment Survey

IBA Harassment Survey - Social Media 1

Global Survey
Harassment in the Legal Profession

The International Bar Association’s Legal Policy & Research Unit is undertaking a new survey focused on bullying and sexual harassment in the legal profession. The purpose of this research is to provide an empirical basis for developing informed recommendations and engaging with all stakeholders. Our previous research found:

  • Half of female lawyers have been
    bullied at work
  • Almost a third have been sexually
  • A third of male lawyers have
    been bullied

We ask all members of the profession to complete the anonymous survey and distribute widely – it is available in six languages and takes 5-10 minutes. Your participation matters: more data means a more complete picture, which in turn means greater prospects of achieving change.
