The South Australian Commissioner for Equal Opportunity was tasked by the Attorney-General, on behalf of the South Australian Parliament, to conduct this independent review into harassment in the legal profession, following a motion which passed the Legislative Council in October 2020.

The report makes 16 recommendations aimed at supporting the development of safe and inclusive workplaces in the legal profession.

The review considered the existing regulatory framework, policies and procedures that apply to members of the legal profession and staff who work in a legal workplace, as well as best practice in responding to and preventing workplace harassment.

The review also considered whether an independent complaints body was required to allow a person to make an anonymous complaint about a legal practitioner.
