With the #MeToo Movement, the issue of sexual harassment and related misconduct in workplaces has exploded into societal consciousness. What about the legal profession, where lawyers are expected to know the law and comply with it? A new survey answers this question, and disturbingly it demonstrates that the same misconduct occurs regularly in legal settings all across the country.
 
Please join us ~ and invite your members ~ to our free webinar on Tuesday, October 20. The survey leaders at Women Lawyers on Guard will discuss the results of this important nationwide survey. The findings are compelling and deeply troubling. It is clear the profession needs to find new ways to address this persistent problem. 
 
Still Broken, the report of the nationwide survey can be downloaded here, and click here for a link to an ABA Journal article about the survey.  
 
We also welcome your organizations’ ideas for combating sexual misconduct in the profession.
