Description

Stories break in the news almost weekly about prominent figures being accused of sexual harassment, decades after policies and training were deployed to address this problem. The legal profession, like other industries and professions, has not been able to eradicate sexual harassment and more can be done. This program will discuss a recent study of the issue in the legal profession, the effect on individuals and the profession, and propose some additional tools with which to tackle it, including “active ally actions” and the Rules of Professional Conduct. Presenters include Cory Amron, President of Women Lawyers on Guard Inc., Corrine Parver, Vice President of Women Lawyers On Guard Action Network, Inc., and Myles Lynk, Senior Assistant Disciplinary Counsel for appellate litigation in the District of Columbia Office of Disciplinary Counsel.
