Podcast: Protecting the next generation of lawyers from sexual harassment
In this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Auckland-based legal researcher and #MeToo activist, Zoe Lawton.
In recent years, Zoe has been a leading voice in calling out sexual harassment in New Zealand’s legal profession and has helped facilitate other victims of such misconduct to come forward. This conversation touches on what the Australian legal profession can learn from our neighbours across the ditch, navigating concerns about career progression, evaluating our progress with cultural change, and ensuring that lawyers never again have to deal with such harassment and misconduct.
