In the Age of 'Us Too?': Moving Towards A Zero-Tolerance Attitute To Harassment and Bullying at the Bar - A Report on the Association of Women Barristers' Roundtable on harassment and Bullying With Recommendations (City Law School (CLS) Research Paper No. 2019/07). London, UK: City Law School Working Paper Series.

Abstract

The Bar Council's Working Lives Survey in June 2018 found that harassment and bullying at the Bar were not only prevalent, but were on the rise. In order to ascertain what was actually happening at the Bar and to consider what could be done about it, the Association of Women Barristers convened a roundtable in November 2018. The roundtable brought together a number of experienced practitioners, many of whom were leaders in their fields and/or had held positions of leadership at the Bar. The aim of the roundtable was two-fold. Firstly, to consider how harassment and bullying were affecting the profession. Secondly, to consider what could be done to assist whose who had been bullied and harassed (and to seek to establish a zero attitude to this kind of behaviour in future).
