The Victorian Bar has launched a revised code of conduct for its members that encourages the reporting of workplace bullying, sexual harassment and discrimination.

The revised code also offers support for victims and guidance to barristers who need to improve their conduct with the introduction of a peer-support barristers programme.

As a result, volunteer barristers will be trained to provide support to those who have experienced harassment, bullying, or discrimination in the workplace.
