Advice, Advocacy, Action
KLC has a specialist state-wide clinic for people experiencing sexual harassment. We have forty years’ experience in dealing with sexual harassment matters and broad expertise across discrimination law, employment law and working for people who have experienced harassment.
We work holistically on the endemic issue of sexual harassment. We aim to improve legal responses to provide better redress for people who have experienced sexual harassment. We work toward systemic change - to improve legal and institutional responses to sexual harassment as well as to strengthen preventative measures.
The Sexual Harassment Legal Service works across a range of areas, including:
- Legal advice, assistance and representation to people who have or are experiencing sexual harassment;
- Community legal education aimed at preventing sexual harassment and empowering people to speak up when it happens. This education is focused on a wide range of audiences, from high school and university students to community legal centres, pro bono lawyers and community workers;
- Law reform work to advocate for better legal protections for people who experience sexual harassment. This work aims to improve how the law and institutions deal with sexual harassment and draws on the direct experience of our clients;
- Leading cultural and institutional change. KLC is a leader in the conversation within legal institutions and with the next generation of lawyers about sexual harassment in the profession.
