Bullying and Sexual Harassment in the Legal Profession

Nearly 7,000 individuals from 135 countries responded to the survey from across the spectrum of legal workplaces: law firms, in-house, government, the judiciary, etc. The results provide empirical confirmation that bullying and sexual harassment are rife in the legal profession. Approximately one in two female respondents and one in three male respondents had been bullied in connection with their employment. One in three female respondents had been sexually harassed in a workplace context, as had one in 14 male respondents. This report provides a succinct analysis of that data in order to raise awareness about the nature, extent and impact of the problem and inform the development of solutions.


The IBA report will provide a backdrop for a discussion among leaders in the Miami legal community -- including immediate past president of the ABA, Hilarie Bass – about what the legal profession in the greater Miami area can and should be doing to address the dual problems of bullying and sexual harassment.  The aim of the event is to both educate and inspire attendees to take personal responsibility for addressing bullying and sexual harassment within their own workplace, and more broadly, within the entire legal profession.
