Gender in the Legal Profession Survey - have your say about how to change the profession

17 Oct 2018

 

We have received the following information from the New Zealand Women’s Law Journal about the Gender Law Report.  Please see below and the survey link can be found at (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DXDMNNP). 

Gender in the Legal Profession Survey - have your say about how to change the profession

WHAT: This project will engage people of all genders in the legal profession in New Zealand about sexual harassment, bullying and gender equality and produce a solutions-focused report capturing ideas for change. The report will be passed on to the Law Society, Minister of Justice, law firms, law faculties and other interested and related organisations and parties.

WHY: There has been good documentation of the problem through other fora. This report is aimed at the next phase: capturing creative options for change. We hope the report will be a useful resource for organisations and individuals when thinking about how to tackle the difficult and longstanding problems in the profession. The success of the project will be measured by the extent of participation, and the response from stakeholders once it is published. In particular, we will be keeping an eye out for uptake of the ideas.

WHO: Lawyers, non-legal support staff, law students, legal academics and people who have previously been lawyers but are no longer practising are all encouraged to participate. Possible solutions are currently being formulated at the firm or Law Society level. This is important work, but we believe that everyone involved with the legal profession has important ideas for how the profession can change.

This project is coordinated by Ana Lenard, Allanah Colley and Bridget McLay. They are enrolled Barristers and Solicitors of the High Court of New Zealand and are junior members of the legal profession. Ana and Allanah are the editors-in-chief of the New Zealand Women’s Law Journal — Te Aho Kawe Kaupapa Ture a ngā Wāhine, and Bridget is the deputy editor. The project is also supported by women from the AucklandWellington, Canterbury and Otago Women Lawyers' Associations. 

HOW: Have your say by completing this survey, comment on our website, or email us with more detailed suggestions at genderlawreport@gmail.com
