Bullying and sexual harassment are not uncommon in the legal profession, according to a recently released global survey of nearly 7,000 lawyers in 135 countries. One in three female lawyers have been sexually harassed in a work context, while one in two women have experienced bullying in the workplace. In its coverage of the survey, the ABA Journal notes that the numbers were somewhat lower for male lawyers. One in 14 men reported sexual harassment in the work context, while one in three have experienced bullying in a legal workplace.
