NZBA endorses Chief Justice's comments on bullying

The New Zealand Bar Association endorses the comments of the Chief Justice, Dame Sian Elias, that bullying of counsel is not acceptable. Her Honour made the comments following the release of a Criminal Bar Association survey in which 64.7% of the respondents said they had experienced or witnessed harassment or bullying behaviour from judges.

The NZBA encourages those experiencing any bullying, or harassment from the court or any other source to speak to a senior practitioner if they need assistance and support in dealing with the issue.

The Association provides support for those at the bar through its Bar Care Committee.
