Analysis of the New Zealand Law Society's national Workplace Environment Survey is well advanced and the results will be released next week.
The survey is the first definitive survey of legal workplace environments carried out in New Zealand. It has the objectives of assessing the level of wellbeing in legal workplaces, and establishing the prevalence and characteristics of sexual harassment and bullying in the legal profession.
Conducted by research company Colmar Brunton for the Law Society, the survey was sent to over 13,600 lawyers practising in New Zealand during April.
It was completed by over 3,500 lawyers - 26% of those invited to participate - which is the best-ever response rate for a Law Society survey.
