Bullying, discrimination and harassment in the Legal Profession – a preventative approach

A legal CPD co-presented with the ASU and The Women's Lawyers' Association of SA

We’re proud to work with the Australian Services Union (ASU) and The Women Lawyers’ Association of SA to co-present a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) session on sexual harassment prevention in the legal profession.

In 2021 the Equal Opportunity Commission conducted a review of harassment in the South Australian legal profession and found high levels of sexual harassment. The report found that 33% of legal practitioners had been sexually harassed at work, with 83% harassed on multiple occasions.

That report recommended changes to the CPD scheme and now requires all practitioners to undertake a mandatory CPD unit this compliance year, covering bullying and harassment.
