The Law Society’s survey of the workplace environment of practising lawyers had been completed by 3,520 lawyers when it closed on 30 April.

The survey, looking at the behaviours lawyers have experienced in their workplaces, was carried out by market research firm Colmar Brunton for the Law Society.

It was sent to over 13,250 New Zealand-based practising lawyers on 5 April.

The results are now being analysed by Colmar Brunton.

“This is the best response rate we have received for any national survey carried out by the Law Society,” General Manager, Representative Glenda Macdonald says.

“The views and input of over one quarter of New Zealand’s practising lawyers will provide some very robust information on some of the behaviours experienced by members of the profession in their workplaces. This will be used to inform the actions we are taking to address workplace culture."

Ms Macdonald says a comprehensive report will be compiled from the survey results and this will be released when it is available.
